Fringe Fabric Technique

By: Pat Welch for Sulky

Follow this technique from Sulky of America to create fringed fabric for clothing such as vests or jackets, home decor accents and more. The heat-away stabilizer disappears with an iron, leaving light and beautiful projects behind.

Fringe Fabric

Materials:

  • Zig-Zag Sewing Machine
  • Sulky Heat-Away Stabilizer
  • Sulky 40 wt. Rayon Threads:
  • Twin Needle - 3.0
  • Coarse silk or other fabric that frays well. It took 36 three inch squares for the front of this small vest.


Instructions:

  1. Cut 3 inch squares from the coarsely woven fabric.
     
  2. To fringe, use a pin or tweezers to pull fabric threads out 1/4" around all four edges of each square.
     
  3. Lay each square on a diagonal on the Heat-Away foundation with edges over-lapping about 1/2"; leave little "peek-a-boo" boxes between each set of four. Pin in place.
     
  4. Stitch with any decorator stitch through the centers of the squares in both directions. Pat used a 3.0 Twin Needle with an Heirloom Stitch and Sulky 40 wt. Rayon Thread in colors to blend with her chosen fabric.
     
  5. Remove Heat-Away according to package directions.
