I love these monster purse I've seen on here before, so I thought I'd give it a try.   I hate sewing that fur on the sewing machine.  Is there an easier way or trick or anything anybody knows?

Anyways, here's my pictures Smiley

They look great, I know the fur is hard to sew!
You're best bet would be to get the correct needle that can handle heavy fabrics, and also if you are lining your monsters (so you cant see the inside raw edges) try using a light weight cotton for lining.
Hope that helps Smiley

When you are cutting them out flip the fur over and cut just the backing. It will be much less messy. When you  are sewing the fur brush the fur away from the seam allowance before you sew it. I tend to sew a few inches move the fur strands and sew a few more. This will make it easier to hide the seam when the sewing is done.
