Coyote Willie – Real fur? …nope..

IMG_9951I got this faux fur from Liliana in Ottawa. She sourced it from France, to make faux fur throws and blankets for her customers. Now she has retired, and I was lucky enough to find her on the world wide web and score this incredible fabric.

It’s so realistic in every way; its weight, level of plushness, silkiness, moveability, and as you can see –sight — so many lengths, textures and so much color detail.

This faux fur also makes incredibly realistic, soft, blow-in-the-wind pom poms and earmuffs.

I bought all Lilian had, so, sadly, when I run out of it, there will be no more — get some now at elle Vintage!

Usually, when I finish a project or event, it’s clean-up and reorganization time. It’s sO great to put scraps of fur away and fill up a vacuum cleaner bag with clippings, threads and furballs. Order and sanity restored!

In theory i suppose. Usually I get stopped by something. In this case, I got stopped by this gorgeous red faux fox fur sitting on the table — I had used some of it last week to make some pom key charms for the market. When I picked it up to put it away..hm…teddy bear! And so, here is Arita.

She’s irresistible.

..but now I have more of a mess to clean up. Honestly, one of these days I will take a break.

Terk is my latest faux fur teddy bear and she will be starring in my faux fur presentation on Sunday, June ll at the Parkdale Flea, 1266 Queen Street West in Toronto from 11am-6pm.

Terk is made from remarkably realistic silky faux fox fur, that looks, feels and moves like real fur.

terkI named her Terk because she reminds me of Terkina from Tarzan.
