We have found this very easy to make Cowl Scarf using cosy Faux Fur. Stylish warm accessories are an essential winter item, especially when they’re so easy & cheap to make!
What you will need
- A metre of Faux Fur Fabric that is at least 150cm wide (makes two cowls)
- Sewing machine
- Ruler, pen, scissors
- Ensure your fabric is cut straight. If not, use a ruler, pen and scissors to measure and cut the faux fur so that it’s a nice, straight rectangle. When cutting faux fur, I always try to cut only the backing and not the fur (it can get really messy otherwise)! Cut the fabric in half width-wise so that you have two pieces that are approximately 30″ x 18″. Sew a rectangle right sides together along the long edge as shown.
- Pull the cowl right-side-out, and then fold the bottom up over the top as pictured. You can keep the seams on the same side as I did (this creates a taller, more upright cowl), or you can twist the inside piece so that the seam is on the opposite side like you’d do for an infinity scarf (this creates a cowl that lies flatter).
- Sew the short sides together as shown, leaving a 4″ hole.
- Turn the scarf right side out and hand stitch the hole shut.
Doesn’t this DIY faux fur cowl look so cosy?
I think it’d be so pretty (and practical) for a family outing at Christmas time!
