Tutorial: Fringe 101
The inspiration for this tutorial?
Cute, isn’t 😉
Ok, so let’s check on the step by step tutorial on how to get a clean, beautiful fringe.
1. Place the pattern piece you would like to add some fringe and the facing (at least 4 inches long)
TIP: remember that we will be cutting two inches from the bottom , so if you are making a top, add the extra inches to the original piece. 2. Sew along the edge by 3/8 inch.
3. Press flat. 4. Under-stitch the facing by making a horizontal line on the facing piece, 1/8 inch away from the original seam. 5. Turn the facing and press flat. Sew along the edge by 1/2 inch, then sew a parallel line where the fringe will start (I made mine 1 1/4 inch apart) 6. Cut the bottom line. 7. Then, grab a pin and start unraveling the threads.
It will take some time, but the results are worthy. 8. Then, trim the fringe by 1/4 inch, so you will have a clean finish.
9. To add some color, I decided to make a satin stitch (zig-zag stitch 5.0 length by 04 width) And it is ready.
I am thinking of making a cute bag and a nice linen top 🙂
