By purchasing the nicest faux fur you can find you can create a retro, Mad Men-style wrap that is animal-friendly.

Project Steps

Take some heavy cotton or muslin to create a pattern piece, or use the one I created:…

Take your faux fur and place it with the nap of the fur facing down. Place your pattern piece on top and pin the perimeter. Cut the fur out with a utility knife.

Choose a lining fabric that is a heavier cotton. Pin your newly cut faux fur to your lining fabric, good sides together, and sew the perimeter leaving a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Leave an unsewn gap and turn the piece right-side-out. Fold and pin the gap, then sew it closed.

Add a hook and eye closure or a nice ribbon and rock your faux fur wrap.


Using a basic sewing pattern you can create the same wrap as I did. Here is the link to the pattern:
