Leather Fringe Vest DIY

The key to a great project is great quality materials. For today's project I'm teaming with The Leather Hide Store. The Leather Hide Store provides their customers with only the finest of leathers. This is the second project (you can find the first one here!) I've made with their product, and I have to say, both pieces of leather have been exceptional. Here's how I made my leather fringe vest!


Supplies: leather piece, scissors, sewing machine, ink pen, measuring tape.

Begin by cutting out the pattern of the vest that you can find here. Once you've cut out the pieces, sew the shoulder straps and sides together, with the outsides facing inward so that the seams face inward as well. Next, on the inside of the vest, make markings along the width of the vest for the fringe. I made my first layer of fringe nine inches in height. You'll want to have small markings along the width to make sure you're making the same length cuts of fringe. Next, repeat this step on the next layer of fringe, right above the first one. When creating a second layer of fringe, be sure to leave 1-2 inches between layers, preventing the bottom layer from sagging. 

Next, give fringe the fringe! Cut fun patterns in the fringe, giving it different lengths and gaps between the layers.
