When i was little I used to sneak into my mothers warderobe and admire her beautiful fox fur that was so soft and warm and grown up. I kinda wouldn't like to wear dead animals around my neck nowadays, but i still liked the idea. Then I saw all of those faux fox scarfs poping up all around the internet in the last few months and i knew I had to make my own:)

I wanted it to have eyes, but i couldn't find them in any store in town (i orderd some form etsy, since I plan to make more of those scarfs), but i kinda like it the way it turned out.

If you want, i can make a tutrial and post the pattern for the head in the next days. C&C very welcome


1. cutting the fabric:
You will need approximately half a yard of some soft warm fabric like wool (fake fur would also probably work pretty well). So first you cut out two head shapes and two rectangles. the rectangles should be around 15 cm wide and the length depends on your wishes (or on the width of the fabric you chose, if you actually bought just half a yard:)). Then you fold the rectangles in half. (you can cut both at once if you have scissors good enough to cut though 4 layers of fabric). Cut them as shown on the picture (that is really really bad, but stupid illustrator won't work so i had to use paint instead:))).

also a "pattern" for the head. just copy it to a word document and size it the way you like.

2. embelishing

If you want to put eyes or noses or any other embellishments on anything (like contrasting fabric on the paws or on the tail) or do any embroidery, do it now (so the stitches won't show later).

3. sewing

put the right sides of the fabric pieces for the head together and sew almost all the way around- leave a gap to turn everything inside out. Then turn everything inside out, iron it and top stitch around the edge and close the gap that was left. Now do the same with the body. Sew the head to the body and voila- you're done!:)

*i hope you understood everything- english is obviously not my first language:) if you have any questions, feel free to ask:)

I died a little when I saw this.  It's too cute!  And I, for one, would love to see a tutorial.  I'm horrible at figuring things out on my own. e-e

My boyfriend is holding a Pokemon themed contest.  Interested?  http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.359328020778498.82645.352681428109824&type=1
