Do you have a pet loving friend who's hard to buy for? How about a fringe leash for their furry friend? These days people have birthday parties for their dogs - This chic one of a kind fringed leash would be a great birthday gift for dog or cat and make their human proud!
To make this fringe: Set up My Own Fringemaker.
First experiment with your scrap yarns to see which hole positions the rods should be placed on the rod unit for your project.
Position rods in holes far enough apart to accommodate the width of the leash plus slack for sliding over the snap.
Sew the fringe off center between the rods so the loops would accommodate the leash width plus snap.
IDEA #1. Add in reflective tapes or threads as you make your fringe. When the dog and owner are walking at night the reflective tape on the fringe leash reflects vehicle headlights.
IDEA # 2. Wouldn't fringe leashes be a cool fund raiser for local animal shelters?
This idea could be your next project to sell and make money!
My Own Fringemaker can put money in your pockets.

We all know people who treat their dogs and cats like their children. Sometimes people even host birthday parties for their pets.
Once you receive an invitation to a pet party - you should realize that the owner all ready has everything under the sun - - - so what do you bring
as a gift? Here's a great plan, and it gets easier and easier with every event! Keep reading!
Make or purchase a multi-colored cloth pet carrier. Measure the carrier straps sewn onto the carrier body, write the measurements down for use later. Choose yarn that will compliment the carrier. Attach the soft side of Velcro™ to the body straps using permanent fabric glue.
Save the hook side for attaching to the back side of fringe.
Set up My Own Fringemaker rod unit. Place the rods in the 2 and 5 holes [to cover the width of the straps, see photo].
Wind on yarn as much as you need. Remove rod unit from base and take whole rod unit to sewing machine. Slid one rod under the presser foot. Center the presser foot between the two rods and start straight stitching, this is called the header.
Repeat sewing making several passes [maybe 6 or 7 passes] to create a strong header.
When sewing is complete, slide rod out from under the presser foot and take whole rod unit to your work table.
Remove one rotator arm, and slide the fringe off the rods. Lay fringe down dab glue on the header stitching and let tack up. Once tacky lay the hook back side onto the glue. Let dry several hours. Once glue is dry attach fringe to straps of carrier. DONE! Sign the gift card and have a great time at the party! You know of course your gift will be the hit of the party, don't you!
NOW HERE's the clincher! Are you ready? You're gonna love this idea!
Since the fringe is removable, next occasion or holiday make a different color fringe to coordinate with the same carrier. You probably have enough yarn and ribbon in your stash that you won't have to buy anything!
So it's one purchase of a multi-colored fabric pet carrier. Which you will always gift new fringe for each event or occasion -costing only pennies! Aren't you clever?? Go ahead and use our idea - to save money! Our embellishing system is such a budget saver and you get
all the credit - go ahead, duplicate the idea - our projects are for inspiration. Would you kindly send us a photo for the Gallery?
