I cut my fringe to 15 inches to allow room to attach to the leather strap. I wanted the studs to land right by my collar bones. The leather I cut to 17 inches [although there ended up being about 3 in extra I had to cut off]. I left the width big enough for a little room on each side of the studs, so a little more than an inch.
Cut a hole in the ends of your leather and slip the ends of your fringe through. Pull enough through so that you know it can be secured and will not pull apart when you are wearing it. GLUE to secure, and fold up.
Next poke holes in leather to attach studs. You may have to play around this with this a little because the leather is thicker now that it has been doubled up.
What do we think? I thought it turned out pretty good, and I just can't wait to do more projects with my Chainette fringe. I just may be smitten with it!
