Instruction how to sew fringe
Work with bangs is not easy, as it can pull off a place lines. Therefore, such a decoration requires a mandatory outline for the basic product. This should be done in such a way that the base fringe "sit" on the fabric freely, with little allowance, then sewing it will pull less material. Therefore, the braid should be taken with a reserve, considering that she "steals" a piece of cloth. Sometimes sew contrast color decoration, so it is necessary to use thread of different colors. In this case, the top thread should match the tone of the fringe, and the lower - the color of the fabric.
If you want to sew a small piece of jewelry, it is best to do it the conventional sewing needle manually. In this case the contraction of the tissue will be minimized. When decorating a large enough area, it is better to use a sewing machine or overlock. The last option is the best, as its functions allow to sew different types of jewelry without deformation base. On a normal car, you can do this with a normal straight line (acceptable double) or zigzag.
Fringes on the edge of the product. Pull up the usual stitch or neaten products edge zigzag stitch. The elastic tape with fringe on the front side of the fabric with a slight allowance. If a decor element, make parallel baster at some distance from the first. Lay the first one line on the machine (on the top edge of the tape), and then the second. Always at the same time firmly stretch the fabric that will help prevent a strong deformation of the material.
Fringes in the middle of the product. Sometimes you need to sew the fringe on the yoke, the outer side seams of trousers (eg, cowboy suit). Make by basting tape fabric (when the fringe is wide, the two parallel stitches), and then stitched at its overlock machine or, with little stretching. Just as in the first embodiment, it is possible to use a straight stitch or zigzag. The last type of line (in the absence of overlock) gives a smaller contraction of the material. After work necessarily otparte product inside out. If the fringe is a relief structure, the smoothing should be performed by placing the product on a soft base.
