In my teens I used to help my mum in pulling threads off the materials to do Tassels.This was very interesting for me  and I ended up doing for my own clothes.
Since then it has been like a hobby in doing Tassels for my  Sarees ,Shawls,Table clothes,and bedspreads.
Pulling threads on big materials is a bit tricky as the threads tend  to get knotted and break..If you manage to pull the first couple of lines  with out the threads breaking or  getting  knotted ,then you won't have a problem in the rest of the materials.
With a help of a top pin or an unpicker you can do it easily.

This is a single knot Tassel  Table cloth which my sister and I did it while watching a film.Before the  film could end ,we finished the tassels.The size of the Table cloth is  45X18 inches.The tassels height is 5 inches.

I had two pieces of materials,and both the materials were  not  enough  on lengthwise,so I decided to join a piece on both ends.

Look !! The  joints does  not show!!

Step 1:

Thick Cotton Material
Top pins
Marking chalk (in case you need)

Matching thread (not included)
Machine (not included)
