11 types of FRINGE TRIMS – Learn to make and sew them – Sew Guide
Fringe is an ornamental border of loose threads from a raveled edge or looped threads, cords, beads, threads, or tassels attached from a separate strip used as a fabric trim. There are many different types of fringes available in stores, but buying it is no fun when you can make it yourself.
1. Loop fringes
Loop fringes have a looped base and are made by making small loops and tacking them in place with small anchoring stitches. If you grade the loops or make a straight line along the edge, you can get a scalloped effect.
2 Brush fringes
Make loop fringes with six or more strands of embroidery thread, clipping the end edge of the loops and cutting all of them open. Use your needle to separate the floss so that the fringe looks full and fluffy.
3. Bullion fringes
Bullion fringes are made of cord rather than yarns, and you can make quick fringes with it by wrapping the cord around a 1/4-1/2 inch ribbon along the top edge and stitching the ribbon and the cord together.
4 Self fabric fringe
This fringe is made from the fabric’s weave, but it can also be made with hand embroidery. Make a single straight stitch about 1/2 inch inside the fabric edge. Remove the weft threads one by one until only the warp thread remains.
