Are you ready for the weekend? Then you need this charming bag.
I made the pouch by sewing thrift store blouses into a patchwork piece of fabric. Then I used Fairfield Purely Cotton™ 100% natural needlepunched cotton batting sandwiched inside the patchwork fabric and cotton fabric in a marsala color. I sewed a pouch with a flap, and added a necktie for a shoulder strap.
Next, I made a marsala colored tassel and pinned to the flap of the bag.
Gather your materials. You'll need the Large PattieWack Tassel Maker.
Wind yarn on tassel maker 50 times on the 4th step of the tool for a 5-inch tassel.
Slip 12 inches of jewelry wire through the top of the tassel an twist it tightly.
Thread beads onto the wire and form a loop with the wire.
Twist wires around each other to secure.
Snip off extra wire with wire cutters.
Slip a 12-inch length of yarn through the slot on the tassel tool and tie the neck of the tassel with a secure knot.
Cut the bottom of the tassel yarns.
Slip the tassel off the tool by gently flexing the tool to release.
Trim ends of tassel if needed, and you're done!
Sew or pin to the flap of your bag and you're ready for the weekend!
