I have a killer eye when it comes to shopping. Whenever I enter any store and I mean any store I will find the diamond in the rough. Case in point, this past weekend we were shopping at Five Below and I found a something worthy of Anthropologie. I’m not sure if FiveBelow is everywhere, but it’s basically filled with random items that are $5 or less. They have flipflops and t-shirts, toys, make-up, candy, books, party supplies, etc. A glorified dollar store. We went in to pick up some pool rafts since I heard they have cute donuts, pizza slices, and popsicles. I found tribal clutches and coin purses! The clutches were $5 and the coin purses were $1. They were cute as is, but I knew I could make them even better with a little tassel love!
Here is all you have to do: Loop a piece of embroidery thread over any of the metal loops on the clutch. I chose to do the side one, but you could have done it on the zipper.
Then to make tassels super easy just loop the embroidery thread thru the original thread you looped thru the metal circle.
The knot all three of them together:
Then cut your tassel to size. Since the embroidery thread is looped on both sides when you make your cut you will already have another tassel ready to get started as well.
Then you flip the threads over so that the knot is not showing and then you can add an additional thread to loop around the tassel and finish it.
Voila! All finished!
I normally only make tassles in one color, but I loved doing the mix of 3 for this clutch.
Can’t wait to take them out on the town!
