How-To: Make a French Knot

How-To: Make a French Knot

This week, one of my craft projects included a ton of similarly-sized french knots. I was pretty excited about how things were going, but as I was discussing my progress with pals on Twitter and Facebook, I noticed a definite anti-french knot trend in their responses. As it turns out, teeny tiny french knots can strike fear into the hearts of even the most experienced crafters!
If you’re afraid of them too, here’s the solution. Check out this fool-proof french knot tutorial from Jenny at Sublime Stitching, and she’ll have you knotting like a pro in no time!

The trick is in really understanding how it works instead of just hoping it will turn out right.

Amen, ladyfriend.
