Friends With Fringe Benefits!

We’re you a child in the Seventies? If you were you will remember fringing and tassels, and maybe not fondly! Fringing was on everything, I had a rather stupendous faux suede fringed bikini! If you are  good I’ll dig out the picture.

Well the good/ bad news is fringing is back BIG TIME…….


And a rummage through the handbag wardrobe revealed this….


Pretty much bang on trend, this little beauty will do me for this trend, but what if you are fringe less but don’t fancy the £500+ price tag for this Yves St Laurent fringe fest….


So my lovelies grab your supplies:

A plain object you want to be fringetastic, bags are a no brainer but what about a pair of shoes with an ankle strap like the pink shoes in the first image.

Fringe! Mine came from New  and I bought a metre – I should have bought two and then I could have fringed both sides!

A glue that bonds all materials, there are loads available check out your local hardware or craft shop.


Here are my supplies….


Then start measuring lengths of fringe and work your way up from the bottom if your doing multiple layers…


Keep going….


Et voila! One little fringed clutch for approximately a tenner…



Let me know if there are any other trends you would like to try, there are some great floral painted bags around I might give that a try!
