Step 1: Determine the Nap of the Fur

Step 2: Trace your pattern on the back of the fur

Step 3: How to Cut Fur

use a razor blade or X-acto knife to cut through JUST THE BACKING of the fur.

Step 4: How to Pin the Fur

Pin the fabric right-sides together (again, I'm using fur + linen, but the same theory holds true with fur + fur).

Carefully tuck any hairs that are sticking out into the body of the fabric. You want all of them to be on the outside of the seam!

Step 5: How to Sew the Fur

Baste all of your seams by hand first.

poke your needle STRAIGHT DOWN through the layers of fabric and pull through. Continue along all of your seams and knot off.

Step 6: Finishing

Now it's time to turn your seam and admire your marvelous work.
