Tassels: How to Create Broomstick & Yarn ChubbieTassels-Another Easy, but Great Tutorial From Sew4Home


Tassels can be the finishing touch of many home décor projects. Unfortunately, they can be expensive and the selection of colors and styles are limited. Fortunately, this doesn't have to be a problem for you...!
Tassels are actually easy to make, the materials are inexpensive & if you sew or craft-you are likely to have most of the materials on hand.
So........................................................................................................................................

Do you know how to make your own tassels...?
They are quick, easy, versatile & just plain fun..!
Again, tassels are a wonderful embellishment for linens, cushions, tote bags, afghans etc. This Sew4Home tutorial shows you how to create two unique & classic tassel styles. Just follow the link above.
First, the Broomstick Tassel which is made with sleek embroidery floss wrapped as a hanging loop and the Yarn Chubbie, which looks like a fluffy, little dancing doll.
This tutorial is part of Sew4Home's Fast Friday series of projects that are about whipping up something wonderful, with items on hand & in no time at all.
Sounds Good- 
They share very basic sewing & crafting lessons-which will add to your skill & lead you in new directions..!

Broomstick Tassels:


& Yarn Chubbies:


These tutorials are for medium-sized tassels, but it's easy to adjust the size. Go larger for home décor projects, like floor cushions. Or, if you like, you can make them smaller to wear as a pendant necklace or tiny as elegant earrings.

This tutorial was written for embroidery floss because it is inexpensive, easy to find & the options are nearly endless. Floss comes in silk, metallic and variegated color options as well as the traditional Pearle cotton. This tutorial was meant for holiday sewing projects-stockings, ornaments, table runners & more.

 Just an additional note:  I came across this article from Vogue Magazine which says tassels & fringe are making a comeback in home decor. This fringed mirror is taken from Instagram's "The Perfect Future". I kinda like it...!
