Today I ........

Started out with this


Which turned into 


And then I did this to it


I took another tassel class today at my local bead shop.
I know I've done one before and made a few but those were small tassels, this time we used a 100g hank and there was no wrapping involved other than for the neck.
I back there in just under a month for a finishing class on it so will have to get stuck in and get it done ready for then. Andddddd if I'm really, really good I'll get the one I bought made up off the tutor ready to go as well (this is supposed to be easier to make but not in my case so I've decided that if I ever get struck with the urge to do more I'll get the tutor to make them up for me!)

That looks really good - I would love to be able to make tassels etc - the beading picks up the colours beautifully. Is there a book you know of that uses this technique?

Love your tassel. Sadly small boys and tassels don't mix so there are none in my house ... at the moment.
