7 Faux Fur Sewing Ideas

October 11, 2016

When you make the Lulu Llama sewing pattern, I recommend buying a 1/2 yard cut of faux fur.  (if you go to JoAnn’s you can save more by purchasing only 14” instead of 18!).  Fur is usually 60” wide!  This means your Llama only used HALF of the fur you purchase!  What to do with that other half?  Well, first, you can just make another llama.  But there are also lots of simple and fun project out there for sewing with faux fur.  Here are a few…


Make a fur pom pom for your favorite hat!  This is really cute.  You can find this tutorial here



This hood from Lemon Squeezy home is ADORABLE!  THis is free pattern that comes in several sizes.  With your left over Llama fur, you might only be able to make the little one.  You can get the pattern here.


My girls would love a stool like this one above for their room!  It is so fun!  You can get the tutorial here.
