Here's the recent projects
Knit cardigan (not really Christmassy), fur shrug, two sparkly knit dresses and two pairs of leggings - one velvet, one denim.
Not sure you can really mix n match the pieces all that much with each other but they add to the Christmas section of the wardrobe.
Tips on sewing with faux fur.
Cut out from the wrong side in a single
layer and try to just cut the backing and not the pile. This reduces
the amount of fluff everywhere after you have cut out. I did do this and
it helped quite a lot.
Its worth chalking around the pieces before
you flip them into their new location (I did not) as this lets you see
you really can fit them on before you start cutting. I didn't do this,
and what I thought was the halfway fold on the fabric was not, so my
back piece came out too narrow and I had to add a piece later.
faux fur is a napped fabric. I went with the fur pile going down the
body. This means you have to cut all the pieces the right way up.
Once cut out do pin together and try on just to check it works. I did do this and found it helpful.
can trim the pile from the seam allowances, though I admit I did not do
that, and maybe my seams are bulkier than they might be because of
My jacket is lined, inserted by the machine bagged method. You
need to leave a bigger than normal gap in the lining to pull the bulky
fur through, mine wasn't quite large enough and I got a little tear I've
had to sew up. Its under the arm though so not noticable.
