Fringe Fabric Technique

Fringe Fabric Technique

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.
