I used a DVD case to wind my yarn around because the width of the case matched how long I wanted my fringe to be. You can also use cardboard & cut it to match the length you desire.

Wrap yarn around DVD one time for each piece of fringe you need. Shhh don't tell hubby I used his Clint Eastwood movie!  He already got upset when I used his coffee mug as a guide for a mug cozy.
