Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tassels combine decorative beauty with practicality--and they're fun to make! You don't even need any complicated tools. Get started with basic one-part tassels, and then move on to elaborate woven tassels attached to elegant handles. A materials and equipment guide discusses a wide variety of available threads; needles and pins; cardstock for winding the thread; tassel heads; beads; string, wire, adhesives, and tape. Carefully consider the purpose of your tassel when you choose fibers; tassels used as pulls for drapes or other soft furnishings have to stand up to wear and tear. Experiment with "Z" and "S" twists, different techniques for making long and short cords, and ways of preparing templates. You'll enjoy creating a bright array of tassels with frilled skirts; mob caps; beaded necks, heads, and skirts; a spider's web head; and a jewelry-finding head. Additional decorative ideas show you how to make just the tassel to enhance upholstery, add to a costume, or turn into an easy-to-find keychain. 128 pages (all in color), 7 1/4 x 9 3/4.

Synopsis:

The basics of tassel making explained in straightforward terms, with over 15 projects to demonstrate the range of possibilities and decorative techniques.
