I have just made my own fringe from an embroidered design. I wanted to add fringed to a blah brown/cream wool herringbone fabric. This type of weave is very hard to pull the threads to create fringe. I embroidered my own. Think of all the great, variagated threads that are available to use that will coordinate with any project. Here is my skirt http://images.ofoto.com/photos1141/2/33/79/2/71/5/571027933203_0_ALB.jpg The design is embroidered on water soluble stabilizer (I use Badgemaster). Stitch the design, soak stabilizer with design in water for a few hours, dry design on a towel, press the design, then stitch onto your project, or sew into the seams. I liked the results best with polyester embroidery thread, but rayon works too. You can digitize your own fringe design or can get freebies of different lengths here : Scroll half way down page where it says "want to add fringe "at http://www.laurassewingstudio.com/Embroidery_Collections/Mucho_Molas_Nouveau_5x7/mucho_molas_nouveau_5x7.html

I can't view the Website/URL, I just get You don't have permission to access /photos1141/2/33/79/41/14/2/214417933203_0_SM.jpg on this server. Does anybody else have this problem? I can look at your skirt and the Embroidery website. The skirt looks great.

I can see the skirt and website by copy and paste technique. Fringe on skirt is cute. I cannot access the "web site/URL" as mentioned above. I didn't feel like joining the group mentioned, and I don't understand how you made this fringe. My sew machine does not connect to the internet-not sure if I can do this fringe. My machine does embroidery, though.

Diane, I have sewn out a lot of the "free fringe" and it is addictive! One thing I have experienced is some of it comes out straight and some is very "curly". Polyester or rayon; varigated or plain thread, does not seem to make any difference. Have you had the same experience? Think I shall try some cotton thread.
