I Have A New Hero...

... And she lives at BeTasseled. My new favorite blog. Seriously. I am so giddy that I found this tutorial I feel like calling Mr. Pretties at work and requesting he come home immediately so I can go to the fabric store and purchase some most excellent fringe. I could so very easily develope a fab fringe fetish. Mmm... I'm kind of getting that rolling around in a pile of sweet, sweet fringe need again, you know, like with the ribbon pile... I'll resist though, because, again, I am not a cat. That doesn't mean I don't wish I were right now...

Anyways... now that my weirdness has reared it's bizarre little head again let's take a look, shall we? She makes these adorable tassels like this:

And like this:

And she was even sweet enough to make a tassel tutorial with step-by-step instructions on how to create your own tantilizing tassel! How great is that? Talk about sharing the wealth! How much do you love that?!

I lurve me some tassels, and that blog actually. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a little tassel pie on the side! Yumilicious!

Now if you're not into the DIY scene Nester makes some amazing tassels too and sells them at her Etsy shop that you can reach via her blog. You have to move fast though, they're a hot commodity! She also has a great post today about all the many, many uses of a tassel to pretty a place up, so if you're not sure why you'd ever want a tassel, let alone need head on over and check it out!


  1. The pictures are adorable. I loved the story about the corn!

  2. If you learn how to make tassels, can you make me some. I can pay in babysitting and dinners!

  3. See what happens when you post at work! I am an idiot, the pictures and corn comment is supposed to be for the other blog entry. Ugh!


Thanks for commenting! This way I know someone is reading this craziness!
