The original plan was to just attach one tassel on each corner of the pillow. First, I had to make my tassels but I couldn't decide on a color so I made several pieces to help me decide, which lead to make a tassel necklace. Since I had already made quite a lot of these tassels I thought I might as well use them all on a pillow just like one from Anthropology.
Then apparently I didn't have enough so I had to make more tassels.
Now isn't this a perfect example of how one thing can lead to another?
