As my first DIY tutorial “Miraculous Shoe Multiplication” rather aimed at summer shoes, now I focus on the “Shearling Trend”, which fits perfectly into the cold season.
Whether on jackets, caps, or boots – the sheepskin can be seen now at many parts. I’m not much of trends, but with the “Shearling Trend” I have become weak. First, because I already have bought some parts in this style and secondly because it is something that not only looks good but also keeps warm. A perfect winter trend, so to speak.
And the best part: The cuffs are removable and can thus be used on various booties and shoes.
Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need
- Faux fur coat in lamb-style
- Sewing kit
- Snap fastener
- Measuring tape
- Clothes cleaning roller
DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions
TIP: By using clothes cleaning roller you can remove the tufts of fur, which I recommend especially for the cut and sewn parts.
DIY Step 1
From the sheepskin imitation cut two at least 32 centimeters long and centimeters wide pieces, turn it over for 7.5 centimeters (from left to right) and fix with pins.
DIY Step 2
Sew the folded ends.
DIY Step 3
Now with white thread loosely sew together in a distance of 1 centimeter above the ending by constant intervals. This step isn’t necessary, but it looks better.
DIY Step 4
Mark the positions of the snap fasteners (two buttons per cuff) and attach them. FINISHED!
I only had snap fasteners for sewing, but my next purchase will be “Non-Sew Buttons”.
The look of the finished fur cuffs. Not sexy, I know;).
The fur cuff gets placed over the booties.
