I did not make that hanger- it's so easy now to buy macrame hangers on am*zon or Etsy... I got six variously sized ones pretty cheap, and I already have five plants hanging in them around the house.
Lin, I'm 67 and I never actually did get into doing macrame. How well I remember it though! You have to be at least in your 60s to have lived through that craze- literally everyone had macrame plant hangers, bookmarks, wall hangings, belts, bracelets, vests, key lanyards... ugh! lolol
I have a couple of friends my age who told me how they used to macrame everything and give it as gifts. Too funny that, like bell bottom pants, macrame is now back in vogue. Grooovy!
I'll say one thing- these macrame hangers are extremely handy for securely hanging any sized pot with any saucer to catch drips. It's actually not easy to find decent hanging pots/planters these days in a size or shape you want, plus they are so cheaply made they'd never hold a big heavy hoya for years on end. This way, I can pick the right size pot from those I have, put a plastic saucer under it, and just load it into the right size macrame hanger. They are very sturdy hangers.
That was funny reading about your cat on the macrame 'trapeze table'.
