    when you attach buckskin fringe to an apron, do you sew the cloth on top of the fringe, fringe on top, or edge to edge??? which looks the best???

      Most people I know sew their fringe on the backside of the material. I think that is what you are asking.
      The things you are doing today are the traditions of twenty-five years from now.

        blacktail.. I always thought them boys back home that had cloth aprons sewed the cloth panel onto a buckskin apron. Or they did'nt have fringe at all unless it was a buckskin apron. If that's the kinda aprons you are going for, then I'd sandwich it between the front and a backing piece of cloth. just a suggestion

            it looks edge to edge.. or rather that the edge are sewn in a way that they are facing the dancers body and thus hidden, i can exacally think of a way to describe the stich but i know it, and use it alot when i sew.... maybe someone else may be able to clarify better

              Ok 2 things-
              1. dem gurls sho can danz

              2. My monitor is pretty low end but it looks like the older guys fringe is one piece- usually about 1/2 to 1 inch longer than you want the fringe to be, which is sewn on with a running stitch on the back side (so that the finished edge covers the partial fringe), it is the same kinda thing you would do to put fringe on the bottom side of a purse. If you wanna get really fancy about it you take some extra material that matches the front and sew it on over top of the fringe with a stitch at the edge and a stitch higher up so it covers the lil bit of extra leather (leaving it sandwhiched between cloth).

                thanks for all the advice guys! it doesn't have to be the exact same as the video. just wondering the best way to accomplish this. i may try blackbear and legalstraight's suggestions and sandwitch it between the fabric. i'm using up the leather i have now for most of the project. it was a "craft" hide and literally looks like swis cheez. i got a pair of cuffs from it and the rest i can get the fringe from. thanks again guys.

                  Ok I've seen these boys dance in person at picnic... and although I've not peeked behind their aprons (roflmao) I'm pretty sure the taller boy's apron is beadwork done on velvet and then sandwiched with the fringe on the edges like I was talking about.. I'm skimming over my pics from past picnics and that's what it looks like. I could ask someone from back home if you want.

                      I agree on sandwiching it. If you have a cloth apron, it really should have a backing.

                            by Czechy
                            Those of you who have cloth fringe on your Grass outfits, what kind of fabric is it?

                            I suppose it would have to be something that does not fray or unravel. Or do you Fray-check the edges?
                            Just curious.....

                            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.

                            Hey y'all. I was wondering, you know those dresses that are cloth but they have the long fringe on their sleeves, what do you think about them? Should you just leave that for the buckskin dancers or what is your opinion? Also if u like that style what do you prefer, the buckskin fringe, ribbon, or...

                            Alternative To Leather Fringe
                            by angela aurora
                            I am looking for an alternative to leather fringe, it will be used for arm fringe on a cloth regalia.

                            Any ideas of what might work? Also I am seeking ideas on how to cut the fringe, as I have no idea how to go about doing it.

                            This will be my first attempt at making a full...
