Making fringe for the play
So my oldest daughter and myself are making fringe together for the costume prayer shawls. the reason I say costume as usually these are woven and the like to specific requirements. I wish I had the time and knowledge to do them that way. Maybe in the future I can but for now I must make something that will look similar on stage. We are making fringe to sew onto the bottom of the shawls where there would usually be fringe from the warp threads. Are are just a simulation of that. I will learn how to make the tassels to add to the four corners. For those people who might read this who are Jewish please realize we wish we could have real prayer shawls and not fakes as we are not trying to offend anyone with a fake. Just real ones cost 350 to 1000 dollars a piece and that is no way in the budge of this production. All the supplies for the shawls I have donated to the production from my own stock of craft items. So I am making them out of what I can no disrespect intended at all.
This is what it looks like on the costume prayer shawl it takes 2 1/2-3 hours per shawl to make the fringe that does not count making the shawl itself adding the stripes and attaching the fringe. Each shawl has about 7 to 10 hours in time in it. Making 11 sets of fringe( 2 per shawl) thank goodness my daughter is helping me or it wouldn't get done in time.
