How to Make Epaulets for Children

August 23, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Shannon of the crafting blog ShannonMakesStuff made these amazing and spectacular epaulets for her nephew’s 8th birthday party, and then posted a tutorial on how to make them for the rest of us. He asked his mom if he could have a “fancy dance where they play tango music and dress up.” He has a tux, and as we all know, a tuxes and tangos are incomplete without a little fringe! And who could resist this dapper accessory – it incorporates fringe, monogramming, glitter, and lots of love.
