Stuffs You Need:
To get started you need to have these following stuffs with you:
- Strap sandals

- Pencil and scale
Decide The Length Of Your Tassel; Measure & Cut
Once you have all the materials with you, start by deciding on the length of the tassel you would like to add. Getting the right length of the tassel is very important as it shouldn’t be too long or too short. 1.5 inches width and 2.5 inches height come as the perfect choice. Whatever your preferred choice just make sure that it is not more than 3 inches. Also, try to cut the top slightly slanted so that you can fold it. Once you have measured the leather piece according to your requirement you can start cutting the fringe. Alternatively you can also buy tassels in different colours and add them to your sandals.
Again use the leather piece and cut several strips measuring 1.5” X 2” and dab glue to the tip of each strip and stick them together to form a loop. Once the look is formed place it on top on the line side of fringe and put some more glue on the bottom of the glue and start rolling the fringe. Add some more glue to seal the tassel once you reach the end of the fringe. Leave them to dry for some time before attaching them to the ankle strap of your sandal and leave others swooning over it. You can also experiment with different lengths and colours and add them to your shoes and sandals.
You can further try different ideas such as colour blocking etc. and have fun.
Now that you know how easy it is to add tassel it’s time to get creative and do fun stuffs with your shoes and sandals.
