jacko@nz Quickdraw Bouzouki capo (21) Origins of Macrame song 14 Jun 17

My daughter has a song she's sung for 40 or so years. The macrame turns into a knotted man and after various adventures he gets wet and shrinks away.
Can any one help with the origins of this song please.
Here's the first verse to help identify it.

    When I came out of hospital the Dr said to me
    Why don't you take up Macrame and get some therapy
    So I bought myself a ball of twine and sat out in the sun
    Didn't know it was to be the start of so much fun
