Baby It's Cold Outside! So, I’m going to teach you how to make a Faux Fur Lined Muff and Hat.  Muffs are rare these days and wearing one will set you apart. They also pair well with vintage clothing. When I wear mine, I feel somewhat like a rosy-cheek girl in a Victorian Christmas wood etching.

    There are other advantages to making and wearing a muff. Here in Pennsylvania, it’s been a bitter cold winter. I have circulatory problems, so even when I wear gloves my fingers are still uncomfortably cold. (This is true for lots of women, as many of us are anemic.) The extra layer of an enclosed, soft, furry muff is just what’s needed to keep fingers warm during wintertime. Furthermore, it’s a simple project that does not take long to make.

For the Muff you will need: 1/2 yard of faux fur, 1/2 yard of quilt bating, and 1/2 yard of fabric for lining (satins and brocades work well).

For the Hat you will need:  1/2 yard of faux fur, 1/2 yard of lining (satin and brocade work well), and a circle drawing compass.

Good don't use real fur
This title is highly inaccurate. It's clearly not faux fur lined. If it were faux fur lined, the faux fur would be acting as the lining, yet the directions call for &quot;1/2 yard of fabric for lining,&quot; obviously making it fabric lined. The fur just sits on the outside as decoration.
This is really beautiful! It's something I would love to have! Well done!
Thank you! :-)
