A word of warning about using any gingham fabric, they don't align too well (at least the ones that I got), so it can get rather frustrating. Kinda think it turned out quite big, not too happy about that. 4" in height and the width, 7 3/4", length, 6 1/4". Should have scaled it down a little.
The tassle was made with DMC rayon (the one Radha gave me for the VSE) and bound with gold metallic thread. There's a good tutorial here and here (click Bricotruc)
Pardon the pics folks, it's actually red, my darn camera just can't pick the reds as well anymore.
