Today, I'll share how to make an adorable, super chick, Boho cell phone bag.
I created the Bohemian vibe using feathers and a fringe on the front of the bag.
In this project, we use some basic macramé knots, along with some unique knots, like the lark's head knot, square knot, overhand knot, four-ply braid, and berry knot, among others.
Wow, that's a lot of knots!
This is a step-by-step guide with instructions on all the knots you need.
This bag is approximately 7.5 inches long and 4.5 inches wide.
Most cell phone types and sizes should fit in this bag. If you want to make it a bit bigger, though, you could add more cords to it or add on to the cord lengths, lengthening the pattern.
To widen the bag, add more cords in groups of four. At the same time, add about 10% to the cord lengths.
I found it helpful to have a cell phone with me while doing this project to fit the cell phone as I go along.
Here's a step-by-step guide to making this mobile phone bag.

I've listed all the materials you'll need below and in the video tutorial.
For cool colors to use in this project, look at my vibrant cord line with multi-ply cords.
I used a pale green cord from this line for this project. This soft, multi-ply cord is excellent for beginners since it holds structure really well.
I release a unique macramé DIY tutorial or helpful tips and tricks video weekly on Patreon.
Here, you can learn macramé at your own pace with an increased variety of tutorials to choose from. I've shared this link in the video description as well – check it out if you're interested.
I also have a structured macramé course on Udemy and Thickific, taking you from learning the basics of macramé all the way to creating your own macramé designs.
