      Saw Hair Many Years Ago

      I would imagine anything that can create a fringe that does not tangle to bad and gives a nice flowing movement would work great.

      A very long time ago (probably 30 years or so) in Texas I saw a woman with horse hair fringes on her shawl. It was very different and looked rather neat.

      Can't remember if they were twisted or not, but I would think that you would want to have it twisted much line twisted buckskin fringe since the individual hairs would create a nigthtmare of tangles.

        flagging tape messages

        If you type in 'flagging type' into the box below the messages titled 'search forum,' you'll find 4 other messages that discuss the subject. Give it a try! Some posts in these subjects also have links to pictures of shawls with flagging tape. I've never personally seen it or tried it (you never know, could have seen it and not noticed). I tend to prefer ribbon, but some sets can be complimented by the tape. In my opinion, it's too wide...but hey, 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' or so it goes.

              i used it.

              i have flaggin tape on one of my regalias right now. it works like a charm. it isn't so bad and it works like magic. i payed 400 for mine, and i think it is worth every cent of the money. its awesome.

                      I think that flagging tape looks cheap if you dont do it right, (i have seen people hot glue the tape on) Ive made two shawls for my daughter using flagging tape and they turned out really nice.
                      i like cut my tape in half after its sewn on so it doesnt look bulky.

                      I will keep using ribbon as well as flat fringe though. but i dont think that i will ever use tinsel, now that looks cheap.

                        i have an idea

                        I was thinking if you could use some sequance strings. like the wide kind or the skinny kind. I wonder if that would work?? Well thats just my little thought. Good idea though.

                            intro and a question
                            by TRose
                            My name is Trisha Rose. Im Cherokee (through my father) and I grew up in Indiana mostly. I started going to pow wows when I was 17 out on the east coast (umass, dartmouth) but have never danced. I only wanted to fancy dance but I have mild arthritis so that was a big no-go. :D And I thought...

                            rolled fringe tab leggings
                            by tribaltagz
                            I know the process for rolling fringe. I roll my own fringe for fans, but my question is how do I roll fringe for a pair of tab leggings? Are they rolled seperate and attached in the seam or what? I appreciate any help folks could give.

                            Growth of fancy shawl dancing
                            by ~Jingle Pejuta~
                            While the popularity of fancy shawl dancing is still growing, I'm talking about the length of ribbon and fringe. When I first started the normal length was like 14" sometimes 16". Now it seems the norm is over 18" going up to 26"!!

                            What length do you use and does

                            Hey there!

                            What kinds of fabric do you use for your shawl?
                            And what about the fringes??
                            Could you help me on this one??
                            Please, any input would be appreciated!

                            I want to make a shawl for intertribals and such. I can do some basic sewing and needlework but havent completed much. I think this would be a good project for me. Before I venture into the brave world of beading :)

                            Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on length. Ive seen...
