I've gathering most of what I think I want and will make this up as I go along. I had a bunch of #12 cotton that I bought and never used.
Delighted to finally justify its purchase . Same for rayon which is too fussy for me to stitch with but the color and texture are perfect. Once it is tangled it is impossible.
I do have a tassel maker tool but it works on the principal of one color tassels and I want tassels of MANY colors so not sure it will work. It might work for the rayon to make mini one-color tassels as the rayon thread is so hard for me to handle. In addition to the threads, I have gathered beads, ribbons and chains..
I found this example of many variations of tassels and I think it will be a great inspiration for me to think outside the box with my tassels. I'm thinking that this is one of those projects that is almost impossible to mess up. I am counting on that.
By thee time I finished this project it should be time to go into the garden.....finally
