How To: DIY Faux Fur Stole

How many times in one week would it be appropriate to wear this faux fur stole? Because honestly, I like it so much I could wear it just about every day. It was surprisingly easy to make, so today I’m sharing the DIY for you to create one of your very own!Material Needed:
- Faux Fur Strip (45+ inches)
- Leather or fabric strip (45+ inches)
- Rotary cutter
- Needle and thread Start by rounding the ends of your faux fur then lay the leather or fabric out and cut it to fit the same shape as the faux fur.Keep in mind as you trim, that it’s better to heave excess lining that you can cut down later. As you can see, the back of the fur was not so cute so it needed to be covered.Once you have the back lining cut out, start stitching it together with the fur. Work your way all around the outside until you’ve sewn the entire backing in place.Easy as can be! This project is great because it doesn’t require a sewing machine and it can be completed in less than two hours.
