Tassel...fail

I heard the nester was having a linky tassel party and I thought I would give it a try.

All through out high school my mom made A LOT of tassels. Every knob, hook, tab, and vase adorn her handmade tassels. My brothers and I would jokingly say that mom would make her first million making tassels.

So I thought well I saw mom make all those tassels and since she bore me and all it should just come naturally to me to make a beautiful tassel.

Well I have failed miserably.

I thought I would make a cowboy tassel to go into Mr. Romeo's room.

I picked Romeo's room because I found woody's hat.

You know woody. Right?




My boys aren't really into dolls so I stole Woody's hat and thought I could do something with it.

After a lot of cutting and hot gluing, I came up with this.


So I can't decide if the top looks like a 20s flapper dress or cousin it.

Oh well I tried.

Katie it looks like the back of a little cowgirl to me. I imagine her twisted grin on the opposite side. Funny how people look at the same object and see different things.

I think it's adorable. I never have luck with those kinds of crafts. I'm too linear.

Thanks for sharing your tassel woes...don't give up, though, I am sure your next one will be just what you envision for it:) I heart tassels, but haven't made one yet, something about that first one is the scariest...thanks for sharing yours! xo

Not a fail, I don't think! The idea of using Woody's hat as a topper is just brilliant! And I love the tassel hanging by those cowboy boots--that is just too cute. If you don't like the fringe at the top, maybe you take a piece of red bandana and tie around it?

Now I'm going to be singing the theme to "The Addams Family" all day. . .
