Fur on animals. "He's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!". Yeah, I actually said that before Despicable Me made it cute. I may have been called "Elmyra" (aka the Looney Toons animal loving psycho) once or twice in my life.
Fur to wear. The fluffier the better. Coats, sweaters, purses.
Fur in home decor. Blankets and pillows. If all of the bedding on my bed could be made out of fur, I would die happy. I'm pretty sure that's what beds in heaven are made out of. Forget cold clouds!
I don't know why I like it so much, I just do. It's just so pretty! It makes shudder a little every time I see it being used in a new way. I know, PETA is gonna hate me now, but I even have a rabbit fur coat that I purchased in Italy several years ago. I couldn't help it. I know, its sad. I definitely had bits of guilt about buying it, but I figured, "It's already dead, so....". Terrible right? It's just so pretty! It's just so elegant. It's like what queens wear! Anyway, I was flipping through the latest Nordstrom catalog recently and came to this page.
"I live for fur! I worship fur!" Here is how to make your own furry scarf. The perfect accessory for Fall and Winter. It's SO cozy too!
You will need:
1, 44X8 inch piece of black fleece
1, 44X10 inch piece of black fur
1. Pin the fur and fleece together along one long side. Pretty sides together. You will notice that the fur is longer on one side than the other. That's ok, I'll explain why in a bit. Note: I pinned the short end together too, just to hold it in place. Do NOT sew that side down.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial. Come back tomorrow and see another fun fur accessory DIY!
