Cut 8 pieces of each color that are 75″ long. Thread each color bundle through Rnd 31 from the outside to the inside at one side of the bag (each color bundle can be threaded through a different spot as long as they are very close together). Pull the bundles through until there is only 10″ hanging on the outside of the bag. Tie an overhand knot and pull it tight against the outside of the bag.
Braid the 3 color bundles of yarn together until there is just 10″ left. Thread each color bundle through Rnd 31 from the inside to the outside at the other side of the bag. Tie an overhand knot and pull it tight against the bag. Trim the tassels so they are 6″ long from the end of the knot.
Cut 2 pieces of each color 16″ long. Lay them evenly on top of each other and fold the bundle in half. Use a crochet hook to pull the center of the bundle through the ch-2 sp at the point of the flap from the front to the back. Pull the loop through just 1-2″ and then pull the ends of the bundle through the loop and tug it tight. Trim the tassel so it is 5″ long.
Cut 16 pieces of each color 12″ long. Stack one of each color together into a small bundle. Use a crochet hook to pull one end of the bundle part of the way through the first ch st at the bottom of the bag from back to front, then pull the other end of the bundle part of the way through the next ch st, take the 6 ends that have been pulled through the chains and pull them through the loop created by the center of the bundle, pull the ends to tighten the tassel. Repeat with the remaining 15 bundles. Trim the fringe so it is 4″ long.
