Helpful Tips

Whip Stitch

The key to joining seams successfully is to match up the stitches on each side
of the seam, using straight, and even whip stitches, without pulling too tightly.

Tassel

If you don’t have a tassel maker, you can make one by hand using this Tutorial.

For sizing reference I used a credit card and wrapped T-Shirt yarn 7 times around the widest part of the card.
