Tutorial: How to sew a child's faux fur muff

Child's faux fur muff

I've been thinking it's time to get busy and start on the Christmas sewing.

Oh, I know, I know. Some of you are done. Blah, blah, blah. You're probably hitting the sales looking for bargains for the 2009 Christmas season.

I am not like you. I have never been like you. I doubt I will ever be like you. In fact , Ive been known to sew the last stitch on a gift in the car on the way to the family Christmas celebration.

But not this year! Today I begin the Christmas gift sewing.

First up? A child's faux fur muff. I know a number of young girls that would be delighted to receive one of these.

It's a snap to make as it's basically two rectangles sewn together - one fur and one of whatever you choose for your lining fabric.

Instructions, with photos, are here in a PDF document that you can view and print at Scribd.

Let the sewing begin!

(I found the tutorial for the cute fabric flower here)

  1. I like it! I like it a lot.It does make for a very nice gift.

  2. LOL! I tend to sew all my gifts at the last minute. Fall costumes finished just before walking out the door to a carnival. Staying up until the wee hours to finish birthday presents. So I completely identify with you. This drives my husband crazy. I would like to change. Any help would be appreciated. :) I wonder if there is a Last Minute Sewers Anonymous?

  3. ooh, I love it... I have been known to be just like you too! Ha!

  4. I'm like that too! The day of Christmas I am making the finishing touches on gifts. I'm very last minute, and I actually love it! Nothings better then that rush of adrenaline you get at the last minute!!! (Except I don't like when I wrap a present all pretty an hour before it is opened. Seems like a waist, being it was only in it's pretty wrapping for a little while. I suppose I could aways use a gift bag....) I'm so last minute I get teased that when I get married I'll be sewing the hem of my dress as I walk down the isle and sewing a few more beads here and there during the ceremony! LOL

    Oh! But I love that muff! I used to have a fuzzy muff when I was little that had a puppy on it. Used it all the time!


  5. Oh my daughter would love something like that! I'll have to try to squeeze that in before Christmas. :)

  6. I love this. I am going to make one for each of my daughters. And - my husband's favorite time to shop is on Christmas Eve - go figure! Beth

  7. I think I know a couple of little girlies who would adore this! Thanks for the great idea.
