Fuzzy, furry - and fantastic! Choose a color to coordinate with your favorite outfits.
- 5/8 yd. faux fur
- 1/2 yd. satin for lining
- 1/2 yd. Insul-Bright insulated lining
- Coordinating thread
- 1/2 yd. batting
- Cut fur rectangle 15" across the grain by 20" with the grain
- Cut lining fabric, Insul-Bright and batting 14" x 20"
- Cut 2 pieces of lining fabric for pocket 5-1/2" x 10"
Note: Seam allowances are 1/2" unless otherwise noted.
With right sides together, sew the 2 pieces of pocket lining all around, leaving a small opening on one long side for turning. Turn and press.
With disappearing ink pen, draw lines from narrow end across muff lining fabric at 1" & 4" down. Align one long side of pocket edge with one drawn line and pin. Pin other side of pocket along other line making a tunnel. Topstitch close to edges leaving ends open. Place Velcro® at each end.
Layer batting, Insul-Bright and satin lining, right side up, pin and baste all around so it can be handled as one piece.
Position fur so grain goes down. With right sides together, place lining with pocket end at top, pinning both long sides (fur is wider). Sew long sides.
To sew together, push one end of muff inside until both ends of muff are together with right sides of fabrics facing each other.
Pin edges together all around, matching seam lines. Sew all around, leaving opening along lining edge to turn.
Turn muff and sew opening closed. Turn the completed muff so fur is exposed. Since the lining is smaller, the fur will go around the ends and slightly inside. Seam is at bottom allowing the pocket to be against the body.
Hints for working with faux fur
With chalk or pen, mark cutting lines of the fur fabric on the back; then cut only the backing, but not through the fur.
After cutting, take fabric outside and shake to limit the amount of loose fur in your sewing area.
Brush out your sewing machine regularly. If fabric has a deep pile, you may want to trim pile away from seam allowances before stitching. Fabric may "crawl," so baste or pin well with long flower-head or glass-head pins to control the movement.
