Pom Pom Trim

Your pompom trim is precut to fit. Place it on top of your finished embroidery so that the ends line up with the design. At this point you can use a straight pin to tack it down or just use your thumb to hold it in place. Once you have a stitch or two in the trim you can remove the pin. Start by bringing your needle to the front at the corner/edge  of your embroidery. Stitch diagonal stitches down the length of your trim. When you get to the other end turn around and stitch diagonally back over the first row of stitches so that you make Xs.

 

Tassel 

Secure your thread under some of your backstitches. Bring your needle up from the back of your embroidery at the tip of the design. bring the needle through the hole of the tassel. hold the tassel down with your thumb and bring your needle over the top and back into the beginning of your stitch. Repeat twice. Secure your thread again on the back of your embroidery.
