How to make a Faux Fur Scarf

You know what's great?

Having a wardrobe full of black and gray clothes (but mostly black). It's so easy getting dressed and even a black t-shirt always looks classy. 

You know what else is great?

The small bits of fabric you have left over from another project. I used faux fur for another project (coming soon!) and use the remaining 1/2 yard for this faux fur scarf.

I'm clearly on a scarf kick. I'm enjoying it, too.

What You Need:

  • 1/2 yard of faux fur
  • Standard sewing tools (sewing machine, scissors, etc.) 
  • 30 minutes

Easy Faux Fur Scarf Tutorial

1. Ensure the fabric is cut straight

Fold the fabric in half lengthwise to make sure it's cut straight (mine wasn't). Cut as needed until you have a rectangle that's straight.

2. Sew the Scarf

Fold the fabric in half (lengthwise) and sew along the edges as illustrated in the photo. 


Turn the scarf right side out. Fold the not sewn corner in and pin them together.

Sew the folded corner at the edge (the fur will hide these seams) removing the pins as you go.

3. Create the side slit (Optional)

If you want the option to slip one end of the scarf into a side slit on the other end, create a small slit about 10 inches from one end. 

My slit is about 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. 

Fold the edges of the slit in and sew along the top on both sides. Again, the faux fur will hide these seams.


And that's it! Enjoy your faux fur scarf!

*This might be the only tutorial that I finish without telling you to press your seams. It almost feels strange.
