Amethyst Tassel Dream Catcher

You can use tassels to accessorize or you can make something completely new and different.

What you need:

  • Tassel Maker-Large (Art. No 9941)
  • Handy Thread Twister (Art. No 9942)
  • Darning Needle
  • Embroidery Floss (Size 8m)
  • 10″ Embroidery Hoop
  • Yarn (enough to cover hoop)

How to do it:

Wrap embroidery hoop with yarn to cover the entire surface.

Netting

Once hoop is covered follow image instructions A-D to make the dream catcher netting.

Make a simple knot by the center top of your hoop. Use a darning needle to wind the embroidery thread around your hoop evenly spaced out. Image A illustrates the direction in which you should be winding your thread. Please continue this pattern until you have a total of 12 loops on outer edge of hoop. Please note you are able to make more or less loops depending on the desired look.
