I made some tassels to replace the cheap looking fake leather pieces as zipper pulls.
I had just found this (picture only) on pinterest and decided to try it with embroidery thread.
I used 2 skeins, just loosened, and cut at the bottom of the circle.
Nine strands of thread were braided for the part that went through the circular link and knotted it under where the large knot would be.
I made 2 go rounds on the knot part because I needed enough length to hide the smaller knot.
When I got done I took a tapestry needle and 'combed' the fringe so it would mostly be single strands.
