Tips for working with faux fur:
- The nap should be going in the same direction on all pattern pieces.
- Do all tracing and marking on the wrong side of the fabric.
- Cut out one pattern piece at a time.
- Cut only the backing and not the faux fur pile. With the wrong side of the fabric facing up, slide the scissors into backing. Cut just the backing. If there is a drag, the nap is also being cut. Back off and start again (practice cutting on a scrap of fabric to get the feel for it).
- Tuck the faux fur to the inside while pinning.
- Choose a longer stitch length.
