pom pom and tassel canvas tote

We think you should add some swag to your bag. For instance, how about these adorable pom-poms and tassels? Read below and see how easy it is – just whip up a few, tie them on, and watch as they turn your tote from blah to aaaaaah!
Step 1
First, let’s make three pom-poms: one pink, one red and one blue. You can make them in whatever size you like, or if you like ours, make one larger and two smaller pom-poms. Trim each pom-pom to make it nice and round, but do not trim the long tails! You’ll use these to tie each pom-pom to the canvas bag.
 
TIP: Are you new to pom-pom making? Don’t worry, you’re going to be a star. Just follow the instructions that come with each set. But, if you prefer to learn by watching, you definitely should check out our video, here
Step 2
Next, follow the instructions on the tassel maker to make a tassel that’s about 6" long. Trim the tassel’s ends so that they’re even.
 
TIP: To make a longer tassel, like the one in our photo, we recommend that you use the set’s size 3 maker. 
Step 3
Tie all three pom-poms and the tassel to one strap of the canvas bag. Knot each one in place, then trim away any excess yarn. You’re ready to take your new tote for a spin!
