Day 5 - Started the Fringe

I've finally got most of the bead embroidery done and the leather attached and the edge on.  I like how it's coming along so far.  Last night I started on fringe.  Oh how I hate fringe.  I say this every time I work on a project with fringe.  I just have the hardest time ever with it.  I think these four strands of fringe took me an hour to complete because I took them apart about a billion times.  At first I was just playing around with different looks, but then when I decided on something, I just kept making mistakes and breaking beads (The one vintage beads I'm using have fairly small holes).  It was so annoying.  I finally just called it a night and set it aside.  I'll pick up work on it tonight.  Hopefully my fringe will cooperate for me tonight. 

As soon as I'm done with the fringe I need to get the spiral rope started.  I don't think I'm going to have enough beads to finish that up, so I also need to get a small order placed.  This project is taking me a lot longer then most projects I work on, but I know it will be worth it.  I'm already pretty in love with it and the pictures just don't do it justice.  I can't wait to get it done and get some good pictures of it.

I don't think I'd have the patience to work on something like this. I made a tiny pin about a year ago, and it took forever. It IS beautiful! Good luck with the fringe - I like the look! {:-D

Thanks, I'm going crazy with the fringe, but I'm almost there. :-)
