Here’s a great video tutorial on how to make your own bag tassels using pre-cut suede cording. Genius and so much easier and less fussy than cutting your own into tiny strips. Plus the cording is available in a huge rainbow of colors so you’ll be sure to find an exact color match for your project, whether in pastels, brights or neutrals.
These tassels looks great hung from the handles of larger bags, or used as zipper pulls on smaller bags. In fact, anywhere you want to add a little bling and make your bags look awesome – add a tassel!
We recommend giving your cord a light pressing with a cool iron when you unroll it. Allow it to cool flat and you can hopefully avoid the ‘poking out in all directions’ effect, and get a much smoother finish like the pink one shown. But the suede is very tactile, and you’ll want to smooth it with your fingers as it hangs from your bag, so it would soften and straighten in a short time anyway.
