Tight Tassels

Here’s an exuberant pillow with kavelfrans embellishment on both sides, and tassels exploding from the corners, photographed on a sunny Minnesota winter day.

The tassels are attached to the pillow using a traditional Swedish method described on a Hemslojd site.  See: “Sätt tofs på en dyne.” These tassels will never come detached. It’s a marvelous method.
