I especially like the last one, it's too cute. Can you tell me cutting your fringe after making it or after sewing it? and making it base strong what stuff you are using?

I have done the Fringe in both ways.

Cutting after sewing the Fringe and cutting the Fringe before sewing. I am still undecided what the better method is though cutting before sewing may be the better choice.

By cutting after sewing you may experience the difficulty that the piece isn't laying flat enough on the cutting board when you come close to the seam.

I used split artificial sinnew to sew the Fringe to the bag and at the same time the bag is sewn. I do many stitches, about every two millimeter a stitch. You almost do not notice them.

On turning the bag outside it is not always as neat as I wish with the corners at the Fringe. Something I can do better.

That problem is endemic. Look at these historic and modern pieces. (In my opinion, the small bag in the lot for sale at Skinners, has been mended or repurposed. The flap, fringes and ties are too clean and light for hide from the late 19th century. Look at the picture of the back and you'll see the old hide.)

You can minimize the effect by using thinner hides. Getting the fringe piece right to the edge helps. I put in a few lone stitches across the seam to act like pins and hold the flap in place without moving. I cut them away after I've sewn the seam.

Also, you can get better defined corners by using a turning stick. I have an old roach pin I use to push out the seams on bags and moccs.

But, all the bags have them. So don't get too hung up on it. It's more important that the spirit of the piece be right.

Think the decisive point is right to the edge but that the Fringe has to end in front of where the side seem will be. In the first bags the Fringe was as wide as the bag. The Fringe of the later bags are to short.

I have not posted the photos yet. My last two bags where made from the thinner part of the hide and are easier to turn. But I like the bit more thicker hides more.

Yes I learned but I need to find a stick which is better suited for me.

On that I am with you.


Must take a number of photos of two new bags and the sewn wallet which needs to be beaded on the outside yet. I have
a new idea about the pattern for the wallet. It will be in red, yellow and either white or light blue background.

Four bags already are give aways and found new homes.

In the second week of August I need 9 bags may be ten and a couple of earrings as give aways on the 10th anniversary of our gathering. Ok, 6 bags are ready by now and the seventh is almost finished.
