Updating and freshing a Fireman’s Themed Throw Pillow

Progress of pillow update. #1 remove one seam stitching. Pull out stuffing. I used the same stuffing but wrapped it in a cocoon of new batting. Reinsert back into pillow and re-fluff eliminating any lumps. #2 This is a trial run with one yarn wound onto the rod unit of My Own Fringemaker. I did not care for this fringe it was too fuzzy. Unwind that yarn and choose other yarns to create the custom fringe. #3 I choose four yarns and wound on a few inches to see how I'd like it. #4 Auditioning the yarns against the pillow to see if it is a go. "Yes, it's a good compliment!" You will need to wind enough fringe to go around the pillow circumference (wind on choice of yarns and sew. Repeat the procedure two separate times to make enough fringe to go around the pillow). Before removing the fringe from the rods each time. Cut the (yarns) now fringe opposite where you sewed the header, this creates loose hanging fringe. I stitched the first sewn fringe into the open side seam. Open the next side seam and sewed in the fringe. Opened the third side seam and started sewing in the second piece of newly created fringe and so on for the fourth side. #5. View of completed pillow. This method got the job done but is not the traditional method or the fastest. How do you like the pillow refreshed and updated with fringe?
