Welcome to fake fur class! First, a few basics. Fake fur has a pile (hairs) that (usually) runs in one direction and a knit backing. Before you begin, take note of what direction the pile runs in, and figure out what direction you want it to run in on your project.
Working with fake fur tends to send a lot of fluff into the air which will all eventually settle somewhere in the back of your throat. I recommend wearing a mask when you cut and sew. If you’re like me and tend not to have such a thing handy, a remnant of lightweight non-woven interfacing tied over the nose and mouth with some scraps of ribbon or yarn works nicely :)
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
