-Turquoise seed beads size 6
-Large size sewing needle
-Black Thread (or brown to match your moccs)
Step 1: Measure the circumference around the top fringe, and double that measurement, then add 5-6 inches extra. (example: if your circumference is 12 inches double that to 24 inches, then add 6 inches, making the thread you cut about 30 inches) Cut thread your measured length. Fold thread in half for added strength and easier beading. Thread needle, then insert thread into hole on bottom of the fringe, pull thread almost to the end and double knot thread making sure it is secure, then cut off excess. (tip: make sure you start at the fringe closest to the zipper so that when you make your way around the fringe it meets up with the other end that sits by the zipper as well. that way you don't thread over the zipper.)
Step 2: After you tie off thread and secure it in the first hole, add your first bead, then come from back of fringe through the hole. Then add another bead, and continue this process til you meet back up with the beginning. Once you get to the end, double knot it, make sure it is secure, and cut off excess. (tip: try not to make it too tight while beading around the fringe or the beads won't lay right and may appear hidden and the fringe may end up laying on top of one another) Repeat steps 1 & 2 to the other layer of fringe.
Step 3: Grab some more thread (about 6-8 inches), fold in half (for added strength), add bead to thread, place bead under silver disc, then tuck thread under on each side of disc, double knot at top, and cut off excess thread.
I'm so glad I added that last detail with the turquoise bead being under the silver disc because it really pulled the whole look together!! :)
