Ready for another sewing project from the "Week of Mom"?
She and I worked together to create 2 new accent pillows for the bed in my guest room, made from fabric I purchased while in Copenhagen.
After constructing 2 12" x 16" pillows from this fabric, Mom and I added a pair of black and olive yarn tassels to each corner of the pillows. The tassels brought some much-needed contrast to the bed while also tying in black and olive green accents from the Lulu DK fabric headboard.
Tassels are pretty simple to make but, first, here's what I needed to make them:
1) a skein of yarn (I used Lion's Brand acrylic yarn in black and olive)
Want to see how to make a tassel in 5 easy steps?
And, like that, the project was complete!
The dash of color at each corner make the pillows feel extra special, don't they?
I like that the pattern reminds me of our trip to Denmark and the tassels reminds me of spending time creating things with Mom. Talk about a one-of-a-kind accent.
