Welcome to this tutorial! Today I’m teaching how to make leather tassels with caps using leather remnants. This is very in tune with the Slow Stitch philosophy because we make something lovely from what some would consider unusable scraps.
I pulled this lovely piece out for some inspiration. Isn’t it beautiful?! My mom created it in the 70s and held onto it all these years. I am beyond thrilled that it still fits!
My mom was so amazing at putting together these patchwork pieces. I especially loved that they are made entirely from leather remnants. It’s a great example of reuse at it finest.
Before I get into explaining what The Slow Stitch Company is, I think I should first talk about my relationship with my mother, Shell, and my father, Doug. I was lucky enough to be raised by two incredibly kind, caring, and creative people. People who love deeply, put their hearts into every project, and aren’t afraid to ask questions to get to the truth. Everything I am today is because of them. They are my best friends. They are the reason why I’m reawakening The Slow Stitch Company.
