Creating new items from old faux (or real) fur coats is a great idea. Not only can you make some great fashion items to wear during the cold winter months, but you can let your imagination be your guide! I purchased an oversized faux lamb coat at Goodwill a couple years ago, simply because it had so much fabric! At $7.99 I thought it was a bargain, given that faux fur at the fabric store is considerably higher-priced than this gem. I had originally thought I would make a cozy winter throw out of it, but instead I decided to make a hat and scarf! This week we’ll do the hat.
