I just LOVE the fringed embroidery designs, but am wondering how well they'll hold up and also how hard is it to cut the correct stitches to make the fringe.

Does anyone have any experience with these designs and have any tips to share?

I have never purposely done this type of embroidery, but have had mishaps that looked a bit on the "fringe"!

I found this tutorial that may be of help.

It's all in how they would make that embroidery design each time. If it's just long stitches that you would cut or pull the bobbin thread out of later, and nothing else right there, then yes they would pull out, things fall apart and not fare well. But, if instead, it's really long stitches and then they have very tight satin stitches fastening them down on the attached edge, on top of that, then they would stay in there.

Just exactly the same, and no different at all, than if you just used a "fringe foot" on a regular sewing machine, feed dogs up, to create some fringe, and then did a few rows of tight, small straight stitches on one edge of it, then last a very tight satin stitch over it. and then pulled out or cut your bobbin thread.

For some "extra insurance" some liquid fray check on the back of the work, after all was done, really probably could not hurt any either. That is what I most times do.

If you wanted to be able to see what thread to cut a bit better, and since it's on the back of the work and would be bobbin fill thread, I think you could make that happen pretty easy, by just using a different color bobbin fill right there on those particular blocks of stitches, just so you could even see them a bit better later, in case of some vision problems. Or just when you get to those stitches, just close to the last ones in a design, or making something that way with even not a hoop embroidery machine at all, then just slip a piece of clear wash away stabilizer under the hoop then, and then those more removable stitches have to sew onto that instead, and no way to even cut out any others by accident, when trying to pull them out o clip them out later instead.

Since then they would by lying on top of that clear wash away stabilizer on the back of the work, and all other stitches would be underneath them instead.

I've made some like that before in embroidery digitizing programs and sewn out, also done that quite a few times with just a fringe foot, feed dogs up on any zig zag sewing machine too. It's fun, just try it!
