Have you ever worked with faux fur? It’s fun to play with and you can make lots of projects with it. We have some excellent tips for working with faux fur from our friend and blogger Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps. Abby has used our faux fur (and also Cuddle) in a few of her adorable softies. This is Part I of some tips we’ll be sharing from her. Here is a link to a post she did on the basics of working with faux fur: The Coolest Piece of Fabric Ever.

The post has detailed step-by-step photos.


This is what Abby ended up making! Isn’t it cute?


Abby used our Mongolian Faux Fur in Grey Frost.
