WHATIF
« on: April 02, 2004 08:19:04 AM »

I have many yards of satiny fringe. It's the heavy upholstery kind, in different colors, about 3" wide.  A store gave it away when it changed locations (along with beautiful silk flowers and big rolls of fabric - was I lucky to be in the right place at the right time or what!?)
You can't trim the fringe because because it is all one long piece that makes up the top band also.  Besides lamps, purses, pillows, furniture throws and bedspread trim, anyone have any idea what can be done with it? I've given a lot away, but am still left with over 50 yards - I just couldn't let it go in the trash.

I'm the one that asked about the door beads (got many great answers, when I remembered I had the fringe I thought about trying just hanging fringe on a pressure rod - so I will try that, but still looking for other uses.

thanks for your help, Linda in B'ham

i would sew it to the hems of skirts and pants, and revel in the interesting reactions i'd be sure to get from my tiny country townfolk.  and if you ever get the urge to toss them again, please toss 'em my way! Wink

You can roll up a several inch long piece  to make a tassel. Put the ends of a folded-over hanging cord on the band part, with the loop going the opposite way from the fringe. Use a little hot glue or fabric glue to hold things together as you roll.
