Yummy!! Looking for Tassel tips

Here is Julie Patterson's Eye Spy pattern!  This pattern is so much fun!
I've paired my new Taffilicious with Lizbeth Azalea Md. (Both size 40... of course!)

I've used one my miracle glowing beads at the tassel.  The bead looks good, but the tassel is a little weak.  I may actually remove that part... does anyone have some good tassel making tips??

I know you have them! If you are like me and don't have tasseling tips then you are probably like me again and would like some tips. Right?

Also REMEMBER!  All this week, coupon: FREESHIPPING will get you free shipping.  This is open to domestic and international orders!  I just ask that if you are international that you order more than one skein since shipping is the same and in some cases more than the cost of one skein.  :o(



  1. I like those colors together.

    Allison from Allison's Tatted Lace shows a neat way to end a bookmark and make a tassel utilizing an onion ring.

    I don't use beads for bookmarks except on the end of a tassel/tail so it won't get in the book.

    1. Oh, that's neat!! That would especially look good with this pattern since it already has the whole onion ring thing.
      Thank you!!

  2. I used to hate tassels, so much so that I wouldn't finish anything until the last possible minute until...I saw this video. It makes doing a tassel not only easy but actually fun! So give a watch and let me know what you think!

    1. Thank you so much for the link. When I first wrote this post, I was going to call you out for your fabulous tassels.... but then I decided against it so that I wouldn't inadvertently disappoint anyone that also has wonderful tassel skills and I just didn't recall them. :o)

    2. That is kind! I don't claim any credit because I'm just following directions, for once!

  3. Hi Jess

    I saw a lovely tassel on Alison's blog yesterday, I do a little tiny snip bit of the pattern at the bottom of the tassel.

  4. This was a great question! A couple of years ago I had a hard time finding information about tassels. I eventually got it but I didn't know videos were now available. Did you see the link Michelle provided had a tutorial about the twisted tail? That solved so many questions for me....
