  • seedbead fringe

    I would like to add fringe to a rosette that I am going to make but not sure how to do it.

    Can anybody give me instructions on how to make the fringe or point me to a site with free info. I looked on the web I found books for sale and beaded fringe for sale but I would like to make my own

      ok these are'nt how to do it on a rosette.. but basically you can follow this for doing the fringe itself and you can either go through the bottom of your backing leather to add the fringe or through your edge beading (although doing this is a bit trickier).
      Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

        thanks for your help. I did add the fringe right to the rosette but I noticed the fringe don't lay flat. did I pull it to tight to the rosette?? well it is my very first one so I guess I will get better in time

          If you are talking about putting long fringe on the piece I would recommend that you check out a device called a "bead spinner" A cute tool that speeds up the process.

                A lot of places sell bead spinners, some quite pricey... i found a link to make your own

                Make Your Own Bead Spinner

                I made one a few years ago, a little differently, out of a piece of a swiveling hanger, a plastic cup, a wood base, and of course duct tape - LOL ... worked pretty good when I had a couple kilos of loose white beads and needed to lazy stich a white background.

                  LOL, Good ole duct tape. You can fix just about any thing with that stuff! My mom once fixed a car with it! LOL, not kidding either. The light was falling off from a fender bender and she popped that sucker right back in the hole and then taped it so it wouldn't fall out. Worked VERY well for like 3 years.
                  I didn't do it, honestly. I have burned all the proof.

                    How to attach fringe?
                    by trob226
                    Hi, new to powwows but not to fabric and clothing construction, but I haven't been able to find anything to tell me how chainette fringe is attached to the shawl. Can anyone explain it to me or point me to some instruction somewhere? Thanks.

                    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...

                    Sewing a simple shawl
                    by New2itall
                    Being out here in non-Pow Wow land, I have managed to make it into adulthood without having attended a Pow Wow. Recently I went to OK and was able to attend a Pow Wow while there (Choctaw). I was told I need to at least get a shawl for entering the circle during open dances. We are going back in a few...

                    by Tawnee_P
                    I've only used ribbon for shawls in the past but want to use flat chainette for my daughters shawl this time but not sure how to attach it to the shawl & should I just attach it at the bottom or up the sides also? For her shawls with ribbon fringe I fringed the bottom and sides. Any help would be...

                    Another shawl fringe question
                    by Mezzobean
                    Hello everyone! I'm making good progress on my first shawl (started last Saturday) and my fringe arrived this week . . .

                    I was reading the other fringe thread here and saw a discussion about using Fray Check on ribbon fringe to keep the cut edges nice.

                    Do you use Fray...
