Somewhere In, Au...
This project was a bit of an experiment because I had never worked with fake fur before. I reccomend to anyone who hasn’t used fur before look up tutorials before you start because the pattern didn’t give very detailed cutting instructions. The fabric tends to move around a lot when cutting so it is best to trace the pattern onto the non-fur side it and place weights on it to hold it in place (especially with thicker furs). Also remember to comb fur away from seams and use a razor or sharp cutting blade to cut just the backing fabric and none of the fur because you can get un-even edges. I only discovered all this after I cut out my vest so there are a few patchy bits near the seams of my vest and the shape is a bit warped. I am happy with the result I think it was a good first attempt and the fur is pretty fluffy so the mistakes aren’t that noticeable, I think it looks a bit like a possum!
Faux Fur! I’m totally against the use of real animal fur
