These are FREE leather classes compliments of Rude Dog Leather. Here's a tool we use in our shop every day. Using it, I am going to teach you how to make a 2 foot wide segment of 18 inch long fringe in just a few minutes.

We no longer sell this tool but I have left the instructions up for your reference.
