The downside of fringe hair

The downside of fringe hair is that it isn't terribly sturdy, and the yarn can be pulled out.

Here are some options to combat this:

-- Using thread instead of yarn as you chain along the side helps a little, since the chain locking your yarn in place is a little bit tighter. After each stitch, pull your thread tight.

-- If you really want that hair to stay in place, when you're stitching the fringe in place, run a stitch through each piece of yarn. This is time-consuming, but there aren't too many quick and durable ways to do yarn hair.

-- If the item doesn't need to be washed, try glue!
