Tassel workshop!!

Upon my friend’s request, I hosted a tassel making workshop today πŸ™‚

You can make many things with tassels. You can make accessories, charms and napkin rings!

The first step is to chose colors. The color combination is really important! I prepared many options for them πŸ™‚

Step 1. Chose strings.

 

My ladiesΒ worked really well!! I introduced a little bit of crochet techniques, chain stitches.

How we worked.

 

Here areΒ one lady’s works. Quite simple but elegant πŸ™‚

Then, I also tried some new materials… How do you think? πŸ˜€ I used a yarn from Italy!!!
My friend said it came out cute, but my husband didn’t like this one… 😦

I enjoyed seeing how people use colors and combine parts!!Β I really had a good timeΒ πŸ™‚

Now summer is almost gone and a cooler season is coming… I guess making tassels can be a good way of spending your free time πŸ˜€

My memorable first customer for bow earrings β™‘

I’m super happy to announce that I’ve delivered a set of earrings to my first customer β™‘

She saw me wearing the same earrings sometime ago, and asked me to make the same one for her!! She is really an active person and busy with her private life as well as with her business, so we couldn’t find time to meet over a cup of coffee almost for one month… and finally!! TADA!!! They are in her hands now β™‘

My first customer β™‘

 

We talked about so many things and it was really fun πŸ™‚

She’s working as a personal color advisor, so if you’re interested in knowing yours, just be brave to contact her πŸ™‚ Here is her blog β™‘

 

Let me put some pictures of the earrings…

I crocheted a gold color wire into a bow πŸ™‚ It’s really hard to crochet a wire… but I get really excited when the outcome gets really cute!!
