Suede Fringed Cape

I have been working on leather garments to show at the creativfestival in Toronto this week. This is a lamb suede cape inspired by Dorothy's garment. I cut all of the fringe by hand using a rotary cutter. There are 180" of 1/8" x 12" fringe! I then hand knotted the fringe in groups of 4, weaving the strands first. The cape is lined with a light weight Italian wool challis.
