Ok so I wanna make a monster-fur tote bag. I've got the fake fur but I don't have a clue what I need to do next! For one, I need a handle/strap thing and two I don't know how big to make it etc.
Has anyone got any tips?
Thankies ^_^

I do have some tips about cutting faux fur--if you use a razor blade on the back, it doesn't chop your fur into nasty short lengths that go flying all around.  A lot of faus fur can also be torn on the cross grain...just make a little snip on the edge with scissors where you want a straight line and tear!  Voila!  Also a way to cut down onthe fur flying! 

What kind of handles do you want?
