Tools & Materials
- Yarn Needle
- 5” Wide Plastic or Cardboard for wrapping tassels
- Wood Dowel (diameter: 1 1/2”, length: 64 1/2”)
- Pendleton Wool Fabric (64” wide x 70” long)
- Thread to match your fabric
- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Hem the left and right sides of the fabric to finish the edges.
- On the bottom edge, fold over twice by 1/2” and pin.
- Sew across with a straight stitch using matching thread.
- On the top edge, create an overlock stitch to prevent unraveling by using a zigzag stitch on a regular machine or a serger.
- Create a pocket at the top by folding over by 3” and sewing a straight stitch using a thread color that matches the pattern. We used the horizontal lines of the fabric as a guide for the stitch.
- Insert the pole into the pocket.
- Create 5” yarn tassels using the tutorial on our site.
- We used nine tassels for our 62 1/2” wide wall hanging.
- Use a yarn needle to sew tassels evenly spaced along the bottom edge. Knot and trim the yarn.
Find your perfect Pendleton fabric on their website. You can request for Pendleton to sew on tabs when you order to make the crafting process even easier for you! We used a wooden dowel from Home Depot and Lion Brand Fisherman’s wool yarn in Oatmeal, but use whatever feels right for you. If you decide to use a lighter fabric, use a dowel along the bottom to add some weight – it’ll allow your tapestry to hang just as well as a heavier fabric would! Tailor your hanging method to the space you’re working with – we tied twine to either end of the dowel and hung it on the wall using two nails.
