You may have to make another row of round 9 if it doesn't fit right... Make two ties: chain 70 with a contrast color. Fasten off and weave 1 tie through the stitches of round 7 or 8, depending on what type yarn and all it may need to be a tad bigger, try the slipper on and see.

Here is the tassel you can put on the tie: cut 12 strands of a contrast color each 2 inches long and tie a separate strand of yarn around center of all the strands held together. Fold strands in half, tie another strand of yarn around all the strands 1/4" from the fold. Trim ends to 3/4" and sew each tassel to the ends of the ties.

Have fun and let me know how the sewing goes!
