Video: Two Custom Trims for Your Garments or Home

Gary Junken

with Linda Lee

Using basic materials, simple sewing steps, and a sewing machine, it’s surprisingly easy to mimic designer trims for use in your home and wardrobe.

In this video, Linda Lee, author and owner of The Sewing Workshop pattern line, demonstrates, how to make “loopy seam-tape fringe” and “wild yarn trim,” as seen in the February/March 2002 issue of Threads magazine (#99, pp. 62-65).

To learn other decorative techniques for your home and wardrobe, check out Linda’s books Sewing Stylish Home Projects and Edges and Corners.

    The video answered a question I have had for a long time. I have some of my mother-in-laws sewing things and I just learned how to use the fringer! Of course the video was in greater depth than what my mother-in-law knew about. Thanks

    It seems to me that you could use a hairpin lace loom to make the yarn loops if you didn't want to make your own device.
