Craft It - Felt Key and Purse Tassels

You know how sometimes you get really into one type of crafting or material and can't help but continue to use it in EVERY SINGLE CRAFT you do? No? That's just me? Well, felt has become my current craft obsession. You may recall my felt heart sweater or felt confetti pillow or even my felt arrow napkin ring? Today I am sharing yet another felt craft with you. Don't hate me. But after buying a plethora of felt, these simple tassels are a quick and simple project to help you use up the little bits that are left over after your other craft projects and they look great hanging from your keys or favorite purse.
