Now that Christmas shopping season is approaching (not so much yet as the elections are of course a scarier issue) we are making ornaments. We like to make a few new types every season, they are always in small editions which makes it fun to make and more special for those who buy them :)
This year we actually made them even more special by making our own handmade tassels! They are so much richer and fuller than the ready bought ones, making them look just way prettier :)
This is done with a fringe maker. After Mum winds the yarn, thread etc around it, I sew it several times with the sewing machine making a fringe. Then I round it up to make it a tassel with some hand sewing and a bead cap or beads for a pretty finishing touch.
We are now working on some iridescent and shiny tassels for some extra festive ornaments :)
These and more are available at Star Home Studio.
