by Barbara Merry

eBook

1 of 1 copy available

Discover the dozens of nautically flavored craft projects you can make with rope!

You will be surprised by the fancy projects you can make with a square knot, a double-French hitching, or four-strand braids (a dog collar, a tool grip, and a decorated picture frame, respectively)! You can also tie the sailor's Turk's Head knot into a bracelet and morph a monkey's fist knot into a doorstop or a fun toy for your dog. Marine artisan Barbara Merry, an expert in artistic marlinspike seamanship skills, shows you how with Marlinspike Sailor's Knots and Crafts. With the help of her expert guidance, you can create more than 30 ropework projects that will add a nautical touch to your boat, RV, camp, or home.

Here are just a few projects you can create with Marlinspike Sailor's Knots and Crafts:

Companionway treads * Gear hammock for your bunk * Decorated carafe * Canvas ditty bag * Water bottle carrier * Manila doormat * Zipper pull * Swing hammock for your backyard * Key fob * Checkerboard * Reusable net shopping bag * Eyeglass case * Ring toss * and more

Don't worry if you have never worked with rope in this way before—Barbara will take you step-by-step through the process, from choosing and measuring materials to putting the final touches on your nautical project. Projects are suitable for scout troops or afterschool activities as well!
