How to make the pompom tassel-

1. Cut off a few pompoms from the same trim I used for the bag, I've used 4.

2. Used a large needle and embroidery floss to attach the pompoms. Go up through the bottom of all 4 pompoms until the are stacked on top of each other on the thread.

3. Thread the needle through the eye of the zip.

4. Take the needle back down through the pompoms until you reach the bottom one, leaving a small loop at the zip.

5. Tie the thread off in a knot at the bottom and cut the excess thread to neaten.

Happy sewing!
