Types of fringe
There are different types of textures you can create with different techniques of making a fringe. In this class, I will teach you how to make 3 different types:
- Twisted cord fringe
- Crinkly unravelled cord fringe
- Brushed out smooth fringe
The cord used is 100% cotton cord, this can be 3ply twisted cord or braided cord. If you are only intending on making the third type of fringe which is brushed out, a single ply cotton cord will save you a lot of time!
How do I make a tassel?
To make the best tassel, a fluffy brushed out cotton look appears the best when it is plump and full. This means using thick cotton (I used 9mm single twist cord for this one) or to use multiple measured cords to pad out the thickness of your tassel.
I will show you how to make a tassel using a very small wrapping knot in this class. You are welcome to add as many tassels as you wish to your own projects, the more the merrier.
I would love to know how you get on and if you have any questions. Please fire away either in the comments below or on my Creative Fabrica Page. You can share your creations with me and let me know what else you need help with so I can bring helpful content to you!
