Adding Fringe to a bag!
Here's a quick tip on making your fringe tight.
Hold on to the skipped bead while pulling the thread through!
You never want the fringe too tight, so roll the fringe between your fingers after adding each row!

Adjusting Fringe when you have different sized beads!
Flamingo Fringe Bead Graph Let's say that you have this pattern!

But the beads you have are not all the same size.

As you are beading along left to right you might not notice a big difference until you are on the 5th row.

Flamingo Fringe Bead Graph In this example the Black and White beads are the same size and the Pink beads are a bigger size.

On the 5th row I've noticed that it is way to long and the black beads don't line up in the middle like in the original bead graph.

(pic 1) is done with the big pink beads with no corrections. I've outlined the beads in Blue that I would remove to make it line up better.

(pic 2) I've outlined the beads that I would add to make the rest of the pattern line up.

Flamingo Fringe Bead Graph In this example the Black and White beads are the same size and the Pink beads are a smaller size.

On the 5th row I've noticed that it is way to short and the black beads don't line up in the middle like in the original bead graph.

(pic 1) is done with the small pink beads with no corrections.

(pic 2) I've outlined the beads that I would add to make the pattern line up.

This is not always easy and not for everyone.  As you can see, they all still look like flamingos. But there are a lot of beaders that want a little more perfection. How do you know when to add or subtract beads. First if the beads are bigger, it is most likely that you will need to remove a few on long sections of that same bead.  If you have smaller beads and a long section of that same bead, you will most likely need to add in a few beads.  Whenever I do fringe or strand work where I  want the lines to match up for a picture, I check my design about every 20 beads to make sure the pattern is lining up like the original bead graph.
