DIY: How to Make a Beaded Yarn Tassel + Our Appearance on The Knit Show

Posted on 05 October 2017


Recently we were invited to film an episode of the new web series The Knit Show with Vickie Howell -- it's a brand-new online show all about knitting, crochet, and fiber love!

Since the television networks are less than supportive of craft programming (uh, have you noticed there are *no* crafting shows on tv anymore? Grrr!), this new online show is an excellent and exciting new format for craft shows. Independently produced by Vickie Howell and ProductionFor, and funded by fiber lovers on Kickstarter, this online show can be viewed by anyone, anytime, on YouTube! 

Yay! Smash the media patriarchy! 

But seriously, huge congrats to Vickie for getting this big project off the ground! The compete first season of The Knit Show has just been released and is available NOW for binge-watching on YouTube, so head on over there to check it out! 


We were asked to appear on the "MultiCraftual" episode with a multicraftual project, so we designed the Leather, Wool & Wood Foldover Clutch -- it's part yarn, part leather, and part wooden macrame supplies -- made by knitting, machine sewing, and knotting!

There's a lot going on, yes, but it's fun to make and actually very quick. We LOVE this piece for fall and think it's the perfect boho accessory for the season.

How To Make A Beaded Yarn Tassel

And for a little extra somethin' today, we made a video demonstrating in detail how to make the beaded yarn tassel embellishment we used on the foldover clutch. It makes for a great piece of flair in lots of ways besides on our clutch -- you can wear it as a necklace like in the photo above.

Or just clip it onto a bag or tote! 

These tassels are SUPER easy and quick to make, but there's one little trick to getting all that yarn through a single bead. Check out our video to see how it's done: 

What's not to love about a project that takes two minutes to make and looks like a million bucks? We are so all about the tassel trend right now!

If you make this project, we want to see! Share your pics and tag us @brooklyncraftcompany and #brooklyncraftcompany.
