How to make a Tassel

 

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.
