burlap pillow cover diy DIY Fox Scarf with Free Pattern customized gifts for mom

Who wouldn’;t want to snuggle up with their very own homemade fox scarf? It’;s like a glamorous old timey stole, but with less dead fox! Let us show you how to make a fox scarf (and give you a free downloadable pattern too).I’;d like to introduce to my little friend here, Frédéric. He took one foggy afternoon to whip up and has been lazily resting on my shoulders ever since. He is made from the finest of flannels and the coziest minky, and boy is he toasty. Want to make a Frédéric of your own?

The best thing about this fox scarf pattern is that you can make a variety of different animal scarves with it: raccoonburlap pillow cover diy, wolf, or skunk perhaps? Round out the snout and ears to make it a bear or panda. The scarf length is also easily customizable to be longer or shorter.

DIY Fox Scarf with Free Pattern

Begin by downloading the Fox Scarf Pattern from google docs. It is free, but you will need a google account to download it. Ok, now that you have your fox scarf pattern, let’;s get started…;

You can make the fox scarf body as long as you want, just use the pattern to shape the head and tail. Mine turned out to be 3 feet long from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. Cut out one body piece of the top fabric (flannel) and one body piece of the bottom fabric (minky). You can use any fabric you prefer.

Sew just the face together on the inside and flip right-side out. This helps with placing the nose and eyes. Hand stitch two black buttons for the eyes.

Cut out the ears, sew and turn right-side out.

Place them where the pattern ear line is and zig-zag stitch them down to the flannel fabric only.

Here they are popped up.

Use Black Embroidery Floss to hand stitch the nose only through the top flannel fabric.

Give him little whiskers too by threading embroidery thread through and knotting the end to keep it in place.

Cut out your arm and leg pattern pieces and sew them together, flip right-side-out.

Place the arms in the same place that the ear markings are at, but on the minky fabric. down.

Just as you did with the ears, zig-zag stitch the arms down just to the minky.

Do the same for the legs.

the arms and legs to each other. This is so they don’;t get caught when you’;re sewing the body pieces together.

Flip the fox inside out and sew around. Leave a small gap in the middle of the scarf open so you have somewhere to flip it through.

Once you’;ve flipped the fox scarf right-side-out, machine stitch the gap closed.

Voila! Your fox scarf is complete.

Now that you’;ve sewn yourself a snazzy fox scarf, perhaps you’;re ready for some other sewing projects? Here are some of our favorites for grown-ups…;

AAACK! This is so embarrassing, my attempt at modeling, HA. Go easy on me in the comments. Soooo… here is a new Hot Mess Mommy tute, for what I am calling the Modern Prairie Dress.I was obsessed with Laura Ingalls Wilder as a kid, but that’s not really relevant. After the maxi-dress incident, I wondered if I could make a long dress that was just a bit more flattering. Did I succeed? You will be the judge of that.HAHAHA that’s me! Maybe you should wash your hair and put on makeup before you try to photo shoot yourself! But anyway, this dress was made with three yards of cotton lawn and one afternoon with no childrens around. Get the full Modern Prairie Dress Tutorial after the jump!

???????????????????? There's probably 50 different ways to hem pants. Every shop I've worked in has had their own flavor or version they prefer. Today, I am showing you how to do simple hand hemming with a needle and thread. In general, this is a finish you will be asked to do in higher-end couture shops, custom bridal wear, and theater where the quality of the finish is more important than the time. Hand-hemming lends a softness and incredible hand to a garment, however it can take 30 min to 4 hrs. to complete a piece so set yourself aside some time to do it if you want this right. The finished piece will generally hold up to the regular wash, but should be treated like lingerie or heirloom sewing. Hand-washing or the dry cleaners is always better for lovely custom work. ????????????????????? We will be doing a top and skirt today for you to see various versions of this. Please note this is an assymetrical draped hem I did for practice. Anyone can do an even hem easily. If you haven't done even hems before, just put on the shoes you will be wearing on the finished piece and a ruler, with a straight ruler or yardstick, get someone to walk around you and measure at the height you want the finished garment to be. Add at least 1 1/2 inches for a narrow hem and 3 inches for a wide hem. If you don't have a "skirt hemmer" (aka-ruler), you can pick one up for under $1 at Wal-mart in the office/school supply section or pay $5-30.00 for a fancy one at any sewing supply store. When I worked retail, we just did this by eye. Piece to Be Hemmed/Finished Scissors Iron Needle (I prefer John James which you can buy in any sewing store or Amazon for a few dollars) Thread (Use good tailors Rices or Salamide thread. This is available in any beading store in small 40 yard cards for $1-2 or online. You will need only need a small amount. One card will normally do several pants or dresses.) Pins (Dressmaker Pins are available by the 300-500 for $1-3 at any sewing store or online.) Optional Ruler (Under $1 at any Dollar Tree, Wal-mart, or School/Office Supply Store)
