an Indian at heart a tassel to everything, u find tassels to every possible piece of textile, bags, belts, turbans, shawls, etc almost everything, old textiles are full of tassels of various kinds
the first ever tutorial am posting

Making tassel out of fabric scraps.
Scraps of fabrics,
seed beads of your choice ( matching or contrast)
hand stitching needle and thread

Cut a fabric scrap to 4” X 1”,
my fabric had zigzag lines on it so I have cut it along the lines,
even straight fabric works fine.

Thread a hand stitching needle with thread, pass some beads through the needle and stitch running stitch along length of the fabric cut for tassel
Pull the thread to make gathers,

pass the needle through the beads and secure the end

Will post tutorials for all the differet kinds of tassels i can make :- part 2 continues after a break

Any further clarifications please feel free to mail me
