Some of the best kitchen and home tips II. It was published during World War II where recycling and ration processes were vital not only for the national economy, but for the survival of every family.
Some of these clues were given from my grandmother, but she was dismissed as cute anecdotes, ‘hard times and hard work’ stories, which often did not require prosperity and abundance of modern conveniences.
As a result, many of these culinary and homemade clues went down in history unless old magazines were collected.
Here, on the yellowing fragile pages, you will find a few home tips that are surprisingly practical today.

Macrame Feather Bag Jewelry


How to make macrame feather bag charms


  • macrame yarn
  • sharp scissors
  • wood beads
  • comb


I’ve grown quite a lot of my bag jewelry because I want to make a statement and I love them that way. Remember, my tassels are all pretty big. It’s just the way I like it. If it’s not your job, then you can definitely make them smaller.

I started using a piece of macrame yarn about 20 inches long. Fold it in half and place it on a clean surface as shown below.

You also need two pieces of yarn that are 8 inches long and folded in half.

One of the short sequences should be placed under the longer track as shown in the photo below. You can see the entire stream in my video above.

Place the other short rope on top and pass the ends over the tops. This is actually called a square node.

Pull all of them firmly and push the knot into the desired area so that the ends are the same length.


Then knot the base / end of the long string so that the square node can shift from the bottom.

After that you need to keep stacking square knots to get the length you want.

I made my feathers 10 to 12 inches long.

After completing the stacking of the square nodes, you need to remove and scan the macrame thread.

I like to do this part while watching a Netflix show. It calms me down. I know… Weird im

After going all over the macrame feather, you should end up with something you see below.

Now it’s time for a haircut to give a feather shape for wallet jewelry.

Finally you can slip a wooden bead on the end of the rope.

And here you have a very large macrame bag hammer.
