Take a look at my DIY Pompom Tassel challenge! The inspiration is from the gorgeous pompom tassels from Mexico, they’re so vibrant and beautoful. I assumed I’d make a simplified model to get issues rolling. Now I’m able to make a pillow with the identical idea!
Impressed by the standard felt pompom tassels present in Mexico, this challenge combines colourful embroidery and vibrant designs to create a 5″ pompom tassel that resembles a solar face. El sol!
I stay in Phoenix, third gen, and I’ve a love/hate relationship with el sol. We’re anticipating it to hit 118 levels this weekend, and gulp… we simply gotta deal. The solar has his job to do, and he’s doing it nicely. Who am I to boring his shine? *Adjusts workplace fan*
Whether or not you’re a seasoned crafter or simply beginning out, this El Sol challenge is certain to carry a burst of coloration and pleasure to any house. And possibly a bit of warmth, too.
Collect your supplies.
Earlier than you start your DIY Pompom Tassel, be sure to have all the required supplies.
6″ embroidery hoop
Colourful embroidery thread
Felt cloth in varied colours,
Prep for embroidery.
Place the yellow felt between the embroidery hoop and tighten till taut. Use the marker to attract the solar face on the entrance of the felt. Use a lightweight coloured marker that may disguise properly behind the embroidery thread.
Embroider the small print.
Use a needle and thread in contrasting colours to sew on the eyes and mouth, proper over the place you drew the face design. You will get artistic with completely different embroidery stitches so as to add texture and depth to your solar face. Think about using a satin sew for the eyes and a backstitch for the mouth. Take your time and ensure the stitches are safe and evenly spaced. Flip over and tie off any unfastened ends of threads.
Minimize it out it!
Take away the felt from the ring. Take one other piece of felt and reduce two circles, go away about 1/2″ across the embroidered space.
Time to sew then stuff.
Pin the 2 circles collectively and embroider the blanket sew midway across the two circles, then add the stuffing. Full the blanket sew all the way in which round. This blanket stitch tutorial helped me learn.
Make the tassel:
Use a skein of embroidery thread, fold it in half and tie it across the high with one other piece of embroidery thread. Glue n place. Minimize the top off of the underside of the tassel, and sew the highest contained in the the pompom. Minimize the surplus threads.
