Gather ten 10-inch lengths of black yarn at one end, and tie them together with another length of yarn. Trim the tassel's unbound end at a 45-degree angle (this gives it a nice horse tail-like shape).
Attach bound end of tassel just inside the fabric with embroidery floss the same color as felt.
Pinch blanket snugly against the side of a highball glass to secure; stitch closed from top to bottom.
Stick a self-adhesive felt number in a contrasting color to the front of the blanket.
