I was working on a project this week that I needed rope for. But I didn’t want to drive all the way to the home improvement store just for one thing. So, being
impatient frugal, I raided what little I have left of a fabric stash, and made the rope out of some thrift store lace.
If you don’t know how to make a rope, it’s very simple. Tie your two strips together at one end, then twist each strip in the same direction. After a couple twists, twist them both together in the opposite direction of the individual twists, like this:
Tie a knot when you get to the end. That’s all there is to it.
(And I didn’t notice until looking at the photo above that our door catch is not lined up with the knob. Ugh, that’s going to drive me crazy now.)
This would be really nice with some jersey knit (or old t-shirts), but that would have been to stretchy for what I needed these for.
As long as we can get it finished, I’ll show you what I made the rope for on Friday!
