As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been obsessing over beautiful fur garments for the last two months.
And more precise – fur hats.
Russian fabulousnes from the latest version of “Anna Karenina”
So, in the days after Christmas I dug a piece of left over faux fur out of my stash, and got to work.
I cut the pieces for the hat in fur, cotton batting and linen for lining.
Then I hand stitched the ends of the rectangle together,and attached the circle shaped crown.
When pinning the lining in, I realized the bating made it to bulky, so I decided to remove it.
Then I stitched the linen to the fur and turned it right side out.
Pattern: N,one – I just drew one rectangle and one circle a few cm bigger then my head measurements.
Fabric: 0,3 m of faux fur and the same amount of linen.
Time: About two hours
Cost: Basically nothing. The linen was leftover scraps, and the fur have been in my stash for a year and a half just waiting to be used for some winters stuff.
Final Thougts: This was such a fun, quick and easy project. I would love to make some minor modifications to the pattern and then make several of these hats and sell (I already have a few interested buyers…)
