Boot Fringe

  My brother asked me to make him some fringe for his boots to complete his new costume. If you didn't know, he is a professional wrestler. Not WWE, but CCW, Classic Championship Wrestling, an independent wrestling federation. If you've ever watched wrestling on TV, you know that every wrestler has some kind of gimmick and a cool costume. My bro's name is  Lobo, formally known as Lobo Loco. His colors are orange and black.





  These are the boot fringe that I whipped up for him. They are made from tee shirts from the thrift store. Unfortunately I only have pictures of the final piece, but I can give you an idea of what I did. If you really want to see step by step, just leave a comment and I'll be happy to make a tutorial for it. I cut two rectangles from one orange and one black tee, about 18 by 15 inches. I made sure to keep t-shirt's bottom seam intact. Then I used a rotary cutter to make my strips, about half an inch wide, but not cutting all the way up. Tug on the strips to make them roll up a bit. I sewed the black rectangle on top of the orange at the top, added elastic and hand sewed the circle closed for each. When that was all done I trimmed the strips at the bottom so they were all even. It was pretty easy. I'll update with a pic the next time Lobo gets his whole costume on. The fringe will start at the top of his boot to about his ankle. I had to go off of the measurements he gave me since we live in different states.
