Let's make Tassels And Upgrade A Pillow Case


Wrapping the yarn: To make your tassels, start by wrapping yarn around a book or other flat surface many times. 

Cutting process: Slip the yarn off the book, keeping the yarn in place as much as possible. Cut 2 pieces of extra yarn for completing the tassel in the next few steps.


Bend half over: Bend the yarn in half over a piece of yarn, keeping the sides even. Tie up the piece of yarn tightly, Leaving equal distance on each side of the pieces of yarn.


Loops: Place your scissors through the loops on the ends of the tassel. Cut the loops to create the fringed bottom of the tassel. Then trim up the tassel to an even tapered shape.


Repeating steps: Repeat steps 1-4 to make as many tassels as you need for your pillow. Here we used a 16×16″ pillow case. We created 12 tassels (each spaced approximately 5″ apart).


Threading: Attach each tassel by threading a large needle with thread, in a coordinating color, through the the pillow case. Sew right through the head of the tassel trying to incorporate as much of the bulk of the head as you can.


Excess: Cut off the excess thread and excess yarn at the end of each tassel.
