Shawl decoration to honor friend

Good evening!

I am making a shawl to wear in intertribal dances. The shawl will be simple, with no fringe. I claim no Native American ancestors but was taken into the circle by a wonderful friend who is Shawnee. I want to have a decoration on the shawl to honor her/her tribe and I'd like some suggestions on what to use.

I've thought of embroidering a small medicine wheel on one corner with small emblems of personal meaning to me on the other 3. This will be the only ornamentation on the shawl.

Any and all suggestions or comments will be appreciated. Thank you!

Lila

No Fringe?

I suggest you add fringe. It takes a little time, but its worth it. I'd also consider a feather in one corner. That is just my personal taste though. There is a lot you can put on the other three corners. You'll just have to think about what is special about your friend and add it. Only you can make that type of personal decision.
Many blessings to you.

Yeah, I would definitely add some fringe. Otherwise, it might not even be considered a shawl.

I suggest chainette, which you can hand tie singly, or buy it by the yard and just sew it on.

Thank you for your answers. I'll definitely do the fringe - it never dawned on me that it might not be considered a shawl without it! I appreciate it.
