      After figuring out what length of fringe you want, Cut all of your ribbons twice that length and making Mark at the centerpoint. Full of them all in half an iron them at that centerpoint. Use double-sided tape and place on the fabric where you will solve the fringe on. Begin placing the ribbons on to the double-sided tape making sure they are all equal in length and distance. Place more double-sided tape over the ribbons once you have them in place and cover it with what ever finish you want to use whether it be sequins more ribbon etc.
