Make an Easy DIY Faux Fur Cowl Scarf

Welcome to the final day of a week of easy, handmade scarf tutorials. It’s Scarf Week – like Shark Week, but far less frightening! From Monday to Friday, I’ve shared with you 5 super-duper-simple handmade scarf tutorials that would make great gifts for your friends and family this Christmas season. These are seriously easy to knock out. I made all 5 scarves in a couple of little girl nap times over two days!

The third DIY scarf I want to share with you is this plush and oh-so-cozy faux fur cowl. Up here in Alberta, soft and warm things like this that hug your neck and look stylish too are essentials! This was also a simple scarf to make, and I’m trying to decide if I want to give it away or keep it for myself.Continue reading

Sew Simple Faux Fur and Ribbon Roses Throw Pillow Covers

DIY Faux Fur and Ribbon Rosette Throw Pillow Covers. They're easy and a fun way to change the look of a room on a budget!

My Little C (4 years old) is quite the fashionista and decorator already.

Her favourite colour is dark purple, and the second runner up is hot pink.

For her new room in our new house, she requested that it be her favourite colours. I convinced her to throw a bit of turquoise in the scheme, and we agreed upon a purple, hot pink and turquoise bedroom decorated in hearts and flowers. What a girl!

For starters, I’ve made these simple pillow covers out of faux fur and a wonderful ribbon rosette fabric I found from Fabric.com. Both of these pillows look expensive and complex, but all I did was follow my old standby method to make simple throw pillow covers.

What makes these DIY pillows look so special when they’re really quite easy to sew is the fun fabric! For the faux fur ones, I just used the fur on one side and used a plain broadcloth on the other. The satin ribbon rosette fabric is so lovely – it has so much texture and it looks like I could have fashioned the rosettes by hand (but I didn’t – so easy)!
