The workshop that I taught last month featured a super fun and funky thimble and ribbon tassel that we all made to decorate the spines of our handmade books. I knew that it was a winner of an idea when one of the women exclaimed, "It was totally worth the trip and the price of the workshop just to learn how to make these tassels!" Many agreed and wow, that was so cool and definitely made my day! After listening to all of the positive enthusiasm, I decided that I would create some tassel kits so that more of you would be able to share in the joy of creating a delightful and charming thimble tassel.
Hand made tassels are certainly not my original idea. If you search online, you will find lots of different tassel ideas...anything from very simple yarn tassels to thimble and chain/charm tassels to an almost five hundred dollar ribbon, lace and charm tassel attached to a handmade chain and bead necklace...yep, you did read that right...smile. What I ended up creating was unique in its own way...featuring a thimble, a bead chain and charms and a variety of ribbons, laces and vintage fabrics and trims...all constructed and assembled in a fashion that I've not seen online.
Now you too can learn how to make one of these fabulously easy pieces of fabric and metal art. I've put together a limited number of thimble tassel kits in FOUR, yes four, different color ways and they are available today for pre-order. Kits will begin shipping the week of October 24th...with lots of time to create your first tassel and use the technique to make many more to use as holiday gifts or tree ornaments. Think too, of the possibility of adding one to the top of a gift, or using one in your home decor...maybe hanging from a lamp or a knob. And, of course, just like we did in the last workshop, you too can use one of these tassels to decorate the outside spine of a handmade book!
Do you want to see what they look like? Here you go...
Wouldn't you agree that they are absolutely delightful? And just think, one (or more) of these kits could be yours for just $25 each (each kit features one color scheme), plus shipping (within the US please). There really aren't that many gift ideas that pack this much creativity and charm into this price point...for sure! And, because they are approximately 9" from top to bottom, they really do make a statement. And, what's so amazing is that they really don't take all that much time to put together...especially when you have instructions and all of the materials are coordinated and packaged together for you.
Your kit will come with all of the trims and ribbons, bead chain, thimble and findings featured on the particular color you choose...the only things that may vary are the charms used on the bead chain. And, if you choose to order more than one kit, I will refund any excess postage collected once your kits are shipped.
