tassels – take 2

October 24, 2010

The alpha version of tassel-making was moderately successful, so I took it a step further.  Still experimenting with material selection, but I think its a good working prototype.  This time I used raw jute for one tassel and nylon twine for the other.

Not really the same look as the ornamental tassels with which we are familiar, but I”m going for a slightly less fussy look with interesting texture.

And of course adding the little buttons at the top and the charm embellishment helps too.  For the next round, I’m hoping to use a combination of sparkly beads and seashells.

Take 2 is a big step up from take 1.  Now I have a much better feeling of where to go from here to make tassels that will serve nicely as gifts, or at a minimum, package adornment.  I’ll be busy on take 3 this week.  Thanks for stopping by!  What do you think?

    Well…you’ve done it again.


    Each for a different reason. The raw jute for the first tassel is so raw and natural-looking. It looks great against the wooden cabinet.

    And the nylon twine tassel, I love because it’s elegant.

    I love that you added the buttons at the top and the heart charms.

    You are so DANG creative, girl!

    Hope you and Cristy had a flawless weekend!
