Isn't this a gorgeous photo of beautiful dancers, all decked out in black pants trimmed in fringe? One Mom, Debbie K, sewed the tops and pants for this dance routine. Before assembling the pants she sewed on purchased fringe costing $750. If she had used My Own Fringemaker she would have saved hundreds and hundreds of dollars with DIY make fringe determination. If she had taken it one step further and attached all the fringe using Snap Tape, all this fringe trim could be removed and transferred onto other costumes - resulting in very economical fringe costumes! This new school of thought, removable fringe, is a sure fire way to save big both on costumes and fringe! Coming soon ~Snap Tape will be sold here on this Website, click the Shop Tab.

When this young dancer bows at the end of her routine, people stand and yell Bravo, bravo. My young talented dancer friend has been dancing since she was able to walk. I wondered how many skirts her mom would buy in a year. At $8.99 from Walmart it is not a budget buster; however if you buy several skirts a year, it adds up year after year. Who needs that expense in their budget? Now buy one skirt and change the fringe as often as you want, remove the fringe, launder the skirt and reattach the long fringe or create a fabulous new fringe and change the skirt look.
This project is the result of pondering how to use one skirt with many different looks...which is possible with removable fringe. Look at the pink strand, 11" drop long fringe on one side and the other skirt side has yards of 1/4" ribbon from hobby store combined with our private STRAND for a lavender flair. Both fringe trim headers were sewn the same way.
HOW TO MAKE Fringe: Please read our FAQ - how to make fringe.
Be sure you understand it is not hook and loop otherwise known by brand name Velcro. Never use Velcro it will snag your fringe and perhaps your garments too. Snap tape available from this Website Shop Tab. The private label strand in 34 colors will be released soon be sure to check back. Do you think this idea gives your dancing angel the competitive edge? Try this technique - you'll be hooked!

Recently I was invited to attend a dance recital. We were entertained by children dancing, twirling, and waving to the audience, ages 4 years up to high school seniors. The last time I was involved in recitals was when I was in them, dancing, waving and whatever.
As time passed during the recital conversations with grandmas and parents seated nearby started. I was shocked by the news those tiny costumes on 4 year old children cost upwards of $80. each and each child has atleast two costumes - add in the cost of lessons, shoes, hair, accessories and it is a HUGE investment. Even if the children had talent - ouch! The cost of costuming is frightful for the family budget!
I mentioned that I invented a fringemaker and would they be interested in an inexpensive alternative - - - atleast for the younger kids or until they show an interest in dance and want to continue? There was a resounding YES YES YES!!! Because as we know it is often Grandma who foots the bills for these extras!
Buy enough T-Shirts for each dancer in the routine. I'd choose inexpensive glitzy T-Shirts from a discounted retailer like TJ MAXX and add fringe to the bottom of the shirt, NOW you have an inexpensive costume top for the youngest dancers to twirl around in, cry, wave to the audience and skip off stage three minute later. If the kids need two costumes make two different shirt fringe combinations.
The fringe on this T-Shirt is made with sparkling package ribbon. I think each shirt would use about 10 cents with of ribbon made into cut fringe. This top would cost about $3.10 to make for each dancer. A far cry from $80. each. They are not washable as some one did ask, but neither are the $80. costumes! Have a parents night of fringe making and save a ton of money.
This idea is to jump start your imagination - what inexpensive fringe trim would work for your school or church pageant? Wouldn't this be a great project for a sleep over?
If it can be wrapped and wound easily onto our rod unit you should be able to make fringe and tassels with it. Create fringe and tassels from 1" to 11" in drop length. If you need up to 48" of fringe with a 3" drop for an outfit - you can make it in one winding!
Whether you want to save money by creating your own fringe and tassels, or make money selling the fringe and tassels you make, My Own Fringemaker is for you!

Toupees look hard to make, surprisingly they're quite easy and you use yarn!
Supplies you'll need:
threaded straight stitch sewing machine, My Own Fringmeaker, yarn, netting or tulle. bobby pins to secure toupee, magic marker to draw ascending circles onto tulle.
2 ~ 10" circles ( use a plate for template) Cut two 10" circles out of tulle/netting set aside.
How to make a toupee from yarn:
Follow How to make fringe instructions found in FAQ.
Place rods in holes 3 and 5 positions this creates the length of hair. You can choose other hole placement for different hair length.
Wind on yarn the full length of rods.
Sew down center between rods, multiple times.
Using two circles of netting makes a stronger base and piece to handle.
Remove yarn (hair) from rods and place one end in center of tulle, begin laying 3" -5" of hair (yarn) onto tulle starting at center point and gently wind yarn outward following the circles you drew. Pin every few inches, stop winding and stitch on the header stitching attaching toupee yarn onto tulle. Continue until done - try on - it'll be fabulous.
It might look odd - but it will look like a toupee. Continue laying and winding the yarn onto the double thickness of netting unil you've covered the tulle. Try hair piece on - adjust and wear wih pride!
