In Ancient Egypt, priests wore fringes on the bottom of their robes to indicate their chosen status. You can fringe the short edges, or make a certain number of tassels on each end for a decorative or symbolic effect. Tassels and fringes look best between 6 and 12 inches in length. If you want to, make seven knots in each corner tassel to symbolize the seven days of creation.
The Ankh icon symbolizes life and immortality. It symbolizes the Universe. It represents immortality, male and female balance, joy of life and energy. The top part of the Ankh, the loop, is nothing less than the sun. The lower T-shaped portion is the handle and shelf you use to carry the sun with you. The meaning is that we carry the sun with us each day. In other words, everyone must carry their own weight. Each one of us is responsible for our own destiny.
