When you get to the end turn around and stitch diagonally back to the beginning. Crossing over the first row of stitches to create Xs as you go. Trim may overlap a bit on each side.

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.
