      It takes me about a week to make a shawl with a design on it. When I make one for a lil' sis I use shorter ribbon.

      I never tried make one with fringe. I was never taught that way.

          In previous regalia that I have had, the fringe used was ribbon, and was sewn on by a sewing machine, ribbon was folded in half, and sewn along the edge of the shawl.

                Innovative Idea for Ribbon Fringe

                I used a method I came up with to sew ribbon onto my shawl. I detailed the method in the <b>attached picture</b>. I used wide ribbon and a decorative stitch to cover the resulting raw edge, which gave my shawl a neat, clean look. I used 28" pieces folded in half.

                      I used fringe on mine an pulled it through an looped it with a crochet hook took me two days to fringe it . An it has been like that for almost 5 years now an not fraied yet. But I do like the ribbon on some shawls it looks pretty too. All it what you like I say.

                        i have an interesting way to attach ribbon sort of confusing but i'll try.

                        i have this double sticky back tape that is 1/4 inch wide that washes out after one wash.

                        i lay my shawl after it has been hemmed right side up on the floor. then i put the sticky back tape along the hemmed edge where i want the ribbon to be.

                        then i lay each ribbon down right next to each other so that they are "upside down", covering up the shawl not the ground.

                        then i sew on binding over the edge...so it sews in the ribbon down once.

                        then i flip the ribbon over so it is the right way now. then sew it again. now the ribbon is sewed down twice...

                          The fringe on my shawl, is 40 inches long, folded in half ribbion. I used a needle, put over 300 fringes in to it! it took me a while to have it done, but it was done. And it is cute to see the fringe go over a Grass Dancer's head when you are out in the circle dancing! :D

                          I did a pattern, witch no one else has been able to do with their shawl's, maybe one day, I will do another!
