For the fringe:

 

I cut strips of cotton measuring 24 inches. I wanted a semi-long fringe. Below is a link on how to add the fringe or tassels.

You can either chain the desired length and glue it to the back of the dowel for hanging, or I can use a white shoestring, cut it to where I want it to hang, and hot glue it to the back.

Hello, My name is SheriAnn. I am a crochet designer and all around crafter. I dabble in a little bit of everything, but crochet is my passion. I love the idea of turning string into something beautiful.

I am a Gamma to four grandchildren, two boys and two girls. I make everything for them. They are my muse. My youngest granddaughter is showing an interest in crocheting, but she is only 3. Maybe next year I can teach her. i have given her her own set of hooks, some yarn and a backpack to hold it all like mine. She sits next to me and tried to "work" like I do. I would love to watch her grow and learn this skill.

I suffer from depression and ADHD. It is hard sometimes to keep myself from having such negative thoughts about life. I love my life with my kids and grandkids and sometimes I just can't keep the dark place at bay.
