from "Kaddish" -- Allan Ginsberg
Sorry for the delay in posts, but I'm done with school for the year and in January, I am off to NYC for my semester internship at the greatest show on television! :D I can't wait to wear some crazy stuff that attracts odd looks in Central Indiana. (I still love you, Indiana.)
I made this fur scarf from faux fur I bought at the fabric store. It is actually quite soft, and the only things that were harmed in the process were some acrylic creatures. For the above photo, I linked the two ends together with broaches to make a shawl-like wrap.
Some broaches to link a shawl or any scarf together. These were my grandma's-- obviously she was a very cool lady.
Other ways to wear a furry scarfette:
Tucked into coat...
Tucked into itself, (directions)
Start by making sides of scarf uneven.
Pull the sides across each other, make sure the shorter side is at the length you want.
Last way to wear it:
Tossed over the shoulder.
For this, I would recommend pinning a broach on the side of your neck to hold the scarf in place. Otherwise, it gets to be a bit annoying.
HOW TO MAKE FUR SCARF:
1. Buy faux fur. I chose this type because it was the most realistic looking and it does not feel like plastic. My opinion: if it feels like plastic, then it looks like plastic, then it most likely does not look so great. I bought a half yard and it was great.
2. Once you have a half-yard, fold the fur so that the fur sides face each other and then sew up the outsides, leaving one end open so that you can turn the scarf inside out and reveal the fur. (You can hand sew this or use a machine.)
3. Turn the scarf inside out so that the fur is on the outside.
4. Hand stitch the remaining open side closed. The fur should cover your stitches so you do not have to be a proper stitcher.
The next couple of days I will be making some Christmas presents and celebrating! I hope everyone has nice holidays, I should be back to blogging more regularly. (That is the plan)
