An inspiring collection of contemporary tassel designs to use as charms, bag decorations and jewellery.
Tassels are fashionable, fun and easy to make
The 20 projects in this book include a wonderful variety of tassels, made using a range of easy techniques and a few inexpensive materials. Carolyn has put her jewellery-making expertise to good use to create gorgeous bag charms, decorative key fobs and fashionable jewellery. There are folk-inspired tassels created using colourful threads and frayed fabric strips, leather tassels and small, simple tassels combined with beads and ribbon used to make colourful earrings and brooches.
The basic tassel-making technique couldn't be easier and is explained at the beginning of the book, and all the projects have easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. No previous crafting experience is necessary. The materials used are widely available, and most can be sourced from scraps and left-over fabric, yarn and threads.
