    I love tassels!

    These may become addicting! I want to add these to some purse and tote projects. Found some great tutes on YouTube.

    Those are really handsome, but I'm curious as to how you avoid having the fabric ravel.

    I don't know what fabric Sandygirl used but the ones I have seen are made from leather or suede so they don't fray.

    On the fabric tassel, I use a 2-sided fusible between two layers of fabric.

    Same technique I used on this purse.

    Aha! What is great about this site is that members respond to follow-up questions. I had never thought about fusing two fabrics to form an entirely new fabric, which could be cut for free-form shapes.

    I've never seen them made from plain cotton before. That is a very cool idea. Thanks for sharing on how you did it.
