I'm interested in adding a scalloped fabric fringe to the outside edge of the canopy on Black Eagle. Where would I find something like that? Would I have to make it from scratch??

Somebody who makes annexes for caravans may be your best bet.

Buy new awning fabric from here and cut the edges off for your boat?:

Buy some sunbrella from a sailmaker or order it online. Cut it to shape and sew on a reinforcing strip, a soft binding, on the scalloped edge. A sailmaker may be able to do it for you too. Sunbrella resists the sun and has minimal fading, mine has held up well. Sunbrella is the colored edge of a a sail's leech that acts as a sun barrier when the sail is furled.
