Posted on | Anne | Leave a Comment

Ready for something cute? Add a string hem to the Felix top, tunic or dress.. Follow the directions below and do not forget to show us your result in our Facebook group or tag us on IG (@Sofilantjes_anne).

Arina makes this tutorial; say hi on IG and thank her by following her account.

Cut a strip, slightly wider than the hem and with a height of 5.5″ – 14 cm. Fold the long top side 1.2″- 3 cm and iron a fold in the strip, this will be the line to where you will cut.

Fold the strip open again. I use a rotary cutter, a long ruler and a cutting mat, to cut the fringes. The mat is great for marking your cutting lines. You cut every 1/8″- 1 cm of the fabric until you reach the fold.

Continue until you have cut the entire strip.

If you want to thread beads on it then proceed in this way: pull at the bottom of the fringe. Do this between 2 fingers, otherwise the fringe will break. Then roll the tip of the fringe between your fingers, so that it is small enough to thread a bead on it. Put a knot at the bottom of the fringe.

Place the fringe on your hem edge and secure with a pin on clip about 0.7 cm from the side seam.

Pin or clip the facing to the hem, you now have 3 layers, with the fringe in between. Now sew the facing in place as described in the original instructions.

Cut the fringe further, up to the hem.
