Create Your Own Colourful Stitched Tassel Bookmark

Bookmarks are not just functional; they can also be a beautiful expression of your creativity. In this blog post, we'll guide you through creating a colourful stitched tassel bookmark. Follow these simple instructions to make a unique and personalised bookmark.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Begin Your Stitching:

  • Start by tying a double knot at the back of the bookmark. This will secure your thread and prevent it from slipping.
  • Thread your needle with the colour of your choice and start stitching your pattern onto the bookmark. Use any stitch you prefer, such as a basic running stitch, cross-stitch, or backstitch.
  • To finish a colour, secure the loose end to the back of an existing stitch. This keeps your work neat and prevents unraveling.

2. Create the Tassel:

  • Cut a 15cm section of thread. This will be used to attach the tassel to your bookmark.
  • Secure the thread through the hole at the top of the bookmark using a Lark’s Head Knot. Make sure it’s tight.
  • Double knot the thread at the far end to ensure it stays in place.

3. Prepare the Tassel Strands:

  • Cut multiple lengths of thread using the side of a cardboard holder. This helps to keep them uniform in length.
  • You should end up with a bundle of cut threads, which will form the tassel.

4. Assemble the Tassel:

  • Place the bundle of cut threads over the double knot you made in Step 2.
  • Take one piece of the cut threads and wrap it around the bundle, just above the double knot, to secure it in place. Tie a knot to keep the strands together.

5. Final Touches:

  • Trim the ends of the tassel if needed to ensure they are even.
  • Fluff the tassel to give it a full and vibrant look.
