Today I’；m going to show you how to make a tassel out of yarn. It’；s the perfect little embellishment to add to a clutch or zippered pouch. This one even has a handy way to attach it to a zipper pull. If you like this post you may also like my post on how to make a pom pom zipper pull and how to make a pom pom.？
You’；re also going to get a tiny little sneak peek at a project coming later this week! I’；ll be sure to let you know when it posts.custom teacher gifts
Normally I’；d post this type of project on Tuesday as a part of my Ten Minute Tuesday series， but this week we’；re going to mix it up a bit and pretend today is Tuesday *wink*.
To make a mini tassel that attaches to a zipper you’；re going to need：
Begin by winding yarn around your hand. ？The more yarn you wind the larger the tassel will be. ？You can also use a piece of cardboard if that is easier for you.
Using another piece of yarn， tie a knot in one end of the yarn you wrapped around your hand.
Cut the yarn on the opposite end from where you tied it.
Take another piece of yarn and wrap it around the tassel near the top about 1/2″； -1″； down. Wrap it around several times then tie it in a knot and hide the ends of the yarn in with the other strands.
Using the yarn that you tied onto the top of the tasselfloral pillow shams， tie a jump ring to the top. ？Don’；t tie it too tight or your yarn will break. ？Hide the ends in with the other yarn strands and clip.
Attach a lobster clasp to the jump ring using needle nose pliers
Give the tassel a good trim to even up the ends and you’；re done!!I also write for eBay and think you might like some of these “；Crafty”； Guides &； Articles!! (sponsored by eBay， but all content， text and ideas are original to me).

In this Instructable I will be sewing a pair of Tank Slippers. These are warm slippers in the shape of a tank. The original concept has been done a lot for crochet (google it), but I have no intention of learning crochet and I do want to have a pair. Now I have a little experience with sewing, but this is something I am slowly learning. I would love to have more experience before starting, but winter is coming in the Netherlands, so I gave it my best shot.
The last post this week focusing on Summer interior design ideas for outdoor living spaces turns out attention to courtyards.

This fun twist on a traditional nine patch block is fun for pillows and hiding secrets in a quilt! This Hidden Pockets Nine Patch Quilt Block tutorial can easily blend in with other standard nine patch blocks and have fun surprises.
