Grab your fabric scraps because we're taking the DIY train to tassel town! I raided my scrap box (okay, it's more like a warehouse) and made colorful tassels and then attached them to a funky bracelet. Now you might want to hang them on a doorknob, attach one to a skeleton key or your keychain. Whatever you decide to do with them, I promise these little tassels will make you very happy!
Have fun! xoxo, Mark
See how I made them here!
STUFF YOU'LL NEED
Large zip ties
Strips of scrap fabric
Ribbon and trim
My awesome assistant, Julie!
I *just might* be secretly cursing you right now for giving me a reason to hold on to my scrap yarns that - up until this morning - I had made myself okay with purging. But I love these bracelets so much!! I want to make a million of them. I've got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for later today that links to your tutorial: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/?p=84143 --AnneReplyDelete
That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me, Anne! I find that the minute I toss something an idea pops into my head and I always regret throwing it away.......Ugh! Crafters are hoarders and we just have to come to terms with it. Thanks for the post, you're awesome!ReplyDelete
oh my gosh, that's the truth. I am now ruing the major fabric stash give away this summer!!!Delete
I don't have fabric laying around . I do have empty wrists so that's gotta count right ?! <3ReplyDelete
Yes, that counts! xoxoDelete
