I did a practice run with a fringe giraffe applique design that I purchased from Applique Alley. I love her applique designs. I was worried about ripping out the bobbin stitches to get the fringe look. It was easier than I thought it would be. I love how it turned out. Now I am ready to sew it on a burp cloth. She is having a sale right now. The designs are .87 to $1.00.
