In this tutorial I’ll show you how to make this decorative tassel.
- yarn in different colors
- sewing thread
- a small piece of wool felt
First make an ordinary tassel: Wrap the yarn round your hand.
With a short piece of yarn tie a knot to secure the loops.
Then cut the loops.
Wrap the small piece of wool felt round the tassel …
… and sew it in place.
Cut a long piece of yarn to cover the wool felt. Tie a knot at one end of the yarn and hide the knot behind the wool felt.
Wrap the yarn three times round the tassel above the wool felt.
Now begin to cover the wool felt with buttonhole stitches.
Continue to sew buttonhole stitches round the tassel till the whole felt piece is hidden.
Make less buttonhole stitches in the last row.
To secure the thread, sew 2 or 3 times through the head of the tassel before you cut the yarn.
Now trim the uneven yarn at the bottom of the tassel.
Cut another long piece of yarn in another color, and hide the knot again.
Sew bullion stitches round the tassel head.
For each bullion stitch wrap the yarn about twelve times round the needle.
When all bullion stitches are finished, secure the yarn again inside the tassel head.
