Okay, I am running out of patience. First of all, I love the look of split tassels. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! All the tassels on my First have split, and I think it looks so rocker cool when they all fling around and blow in the wind. Now, my City is a different story. I have been very patient so far, and haven't really poked or picked at the tassels. The bag itself is certainly starting to break in better (been using her for 2-ish months), but the tassels barely show any sign of splitting... maybe just a small area where they are beginning to pull apart. From the threads I've read it seems that most of you do not prefer the look of split tassels, but still I have to ask... Has anyone split their own tassels? Does anyone have any success or horror stories of DIY Tassel Splitting? Thanks so much!
