All you need is:
- Floral scarf
- Black fringe
- 50 x large gold prongs studs
- 50 x gold metal backing plates
- Iron the piece of fabric and fold it in half lengthways.
- Measure approximately 60cm (24″) from either ends of the fabric and mark it clearly with a pin or chalk. You will be attaching the sides together to create sleeves while the middle section will be open and act as the body of the kimono. The fringe will go all the way along from end to end, but in the middle section it will only be attached to the bottom side of the fabric.
- Place the fringe along the edge of the double up edge of fabric.
- Using the round prong studs, start pressing them through at 3cm (a little more than 1 inch) intervals, sandwiching both sides of the fabric together.
- When you are closing the prongs, add one of the ‘blanks’ into the back so it locks the fabric in and then press the prongs down.
- When you get to the 60cm (24 in) point where you marked with pins, continue to attach the fringe all the way along but only to the underside of the fabric rather than both.
