Macrame Gift by ForeverCreative Macrame Gift by ForeverCreative
A first Anniversary keepsake gift for my Husband. Who spoils me with love.
The Macramé design around this miniature wine bottle, was created as I went.
I made a small quick sketch however, of shapes for the best possible placement for the beads.
I hand stitched together, and hand painted the leaves on the leather pouch for the bottle.
The miniature scroll that goes inside, I also hand made and painted.
We had a lovely time at Paradise Cove, in Malibu California.
I bet you can’t guess? What happened after? :)
Close detail of this work, can be seen here..

Macrame Gift by *ForeverCreative is so beautifully crafted and you can tell a lot of heart and time went into it since it serves as a wedding anniversary gift. The detail on the leather and scroll and the beads on the knotting work match perfectly and really tie it all together. Such a beautiful, creative, and romantic present! ( Suggested by Kizziesama and Featured by Myana )

"Wow" does not do this piece justice, but it's all I can come up with after several days of very little sleep. So, WOW! The scroll is by far my favourite part, the details are so realistic. Looks like you found an authentic scroll and shrunk it down! I'm wondering, how large is it?

:iconforevercreative:
ForeverCreative Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
Thank you! the scroll is 2'' wide, Very thin rice paper was used, just fits inside the bottle. Hope you catch up on some sleep. :) I am honored you took the time to comment on this piece. HUGS!

That bottle is possible the most beautiful macramé I've ever seen! My knotwork pales by comparison, I'm afraid. Your husband is lucky to have someone who obviously loves him so much, to have put so much of herself into a gift for him.
