Clear up some counter space while adding texture and style to any corner of your kitchen with these knotted pantry bags. In this class, Creativebug Artist Coach, Cobrina demonstrates making these in two sizes - a bag from cotton rope that is superb for onions, avocados or large citrus, and a small twine bag best suited for garlic, shallots or limes. Both versions show off the beauty of simple macrame knots. She shows you the Half Knot which is the building block knot for so many others, and when repeated, the Half Knot creates lots of fun iterations such as the Square Knot, the Spiral, and Solomon Bar. Finally, use the whipping knot to gather all your cords together for a neat finish.Learn how to:

I like this project and I feel my remembered experience from making planter hangers in the 1970s will translate into making this an easy project for me to do. I would suggest that anyone very new to this craft, however, should practice a couple of knots before jumping in and doing it altogether. The muscle memory of tying the knots is what makes it easier or more difficult. Thanks, I can use this project in my own kitchen!
