DIY Faux Fur Vest!


Soooo I’ve been looking for the perfect Faux Fur vest…. something similar to these:

Faux Fur Vest

Unfortunately, everything I like is always over $300, so I tried a new plan.

I found a tutorial online to make your own, and I wondered why I never thought to make my own before 🙂
Well, Joann’s only had ugly faux fur option, and fabric is expensive too!!

Then – I found a faux fur tree skirt at TJMaxx and thought, that would be nice as a vest! It was only $15!! After-Christmas Sale!

I used my white zip puffer vest for a pattern – Sorry I never take very good before pics 🙁 I just forget because I’m excited about the finished product.

I wish I could post a tutorial, but it took me 3 tries to do this correctly – I learned that you should probably watch the youtube videos and read other tutorials before just sewing things together.

This blog was super helpful and also this google book excerpt. After I read these, I finally figured out what I was doing.

When working with any furry fabric, remember that you will get fuzz everywhere – I made this last week, and I”ve swiffered several times, but I’m still finding little furry pieces around the apt…
