Loops with Fringe Benefits

Montage of loop and fringe techniques

3-6 class hours.

Liven up your garments with loops, or turn them into faux fringe! You’ll learn how to mimic a frayed woven edge, work single & double loops, add bows, I-cord loops and corkscrews. Apply some after-the-fact fringe, and learn a few tricks for going beyond basic overhand knots. Practice the techniques by making the class sampler bag, or use them in your own fun projects.
