"Dad told me there is no fringe at Wal-Mart"

These were the famous words of Greg this morning when I told him we had to go buy some fringe. Isn't that just like a BOY? Any girl would be like "You need fringe?!?
LET'S GO!"
You see, I came across one of my most favorite blogs ever a few months ago written by a certain Miss Susie at Bienvenue. She makes these adorable tassels and I have been adoring them every time I read her blog.

But the crafty girl in me came out saying "I can SO make that!" Um, not so fast there Kristen. It looks simple enough but when you don't have one to look at in person to copy and you've never done it before...well, it's not as easy as it looks!
So today...I finally present to you my very first tassel EVER. Susie is probably weeping tears of joy (or more likely horror) at this accomplishment.

And let me add for the record that with the time and money I spent...I should have just clicked on her little Etsy linkadoo and been done with it!

Beautiful! I love it~
Our Walmart does have some fringe but not much. You need to check out Hobby Lobby. You will go tassel crazy with all of their fringe. I love your tassel Miss Kris. Very pretty!

I think it looks great! I have learned through the years that I am better off (financially) to just buy things. I have to do things over and over again to get them right and then I have wasted a bunch of time and money!

Exactly! I always think I'm going to make one, but I KNOW I would just end up spending more money that if I had actually bought one. Yours is perfect, though. I love the colors! Good job, Gayle!
