One of my latest challenges. Each side had 120 tassels that were sewn down individually. Customer was extremely pleased with the final product! Gave them a “pre-quote” which did not include time spent sewing each strand. No complaints when told how many hours it took to complete the “add-on.”

I've done a few of military items with the tassels all around.
What is the correct term for them?

It never occurred to me to do what you did.
What a vast improvement it makes to have those tassels perfectly aligned.
Nice work. 👍

Now I will keep in mind that if anybody does want that done I have a benchmark estimate of time it could take.
Thanks for being the brave one to take on that task.

Not to be a dirty oleMan but tassels are accoutrements for certain types of dancer.

Yup. Rick is correct. That is fringe.

That is some job, but I am not sure I like fringe so regimented. I far prefer the unstitched side; but even to achieve that more casual look, each twist would have to be stitched in place.
