Step 3: Cutting Fur
When working with real or faux fur, DO NOT USE SCISSORS TO CUT THE FUR. If you do so, it will result in a choppy, ugly haircut of the hair.
- Mark your pattern piece on the back of the fur. Fur is directional (meaning: it has a nap) so you want all of the pieces to lay in the same direction.
- While holding the fur up and away from any surface, use a straight blade to cut the skin.
- After all the pieces are cut, lay them out in an order so any color variations blend.
