This Anthropology inspired swirled faux fur cowl is nearly an exact replica for a fraction of the cost.
I mooned over the Anthropology's swirled fur cowl until inspiration struck and I figured out a frugal way to make my own.
'Swirled fur', well, that's exactly how I would describe some minkys...and I just so happen to have some left over minky fabric from Grace's pig costume I made last year.
The best part, I had enough minky left over to cut it down to 27 X 16. The perfect cowl length. I started measuring from the salvage end. Typically, you would not want to use the salvage end of fabric but for this cowl, it helped give the cowl a finished look.
Once you have your faux fur (or minky) cut, fold it in half, faux fur facing in. Sew the length of the minky.
Turn the faux fur tube, you just sewed, right side out. Tuck the non-salvage end of the tube into the salvaged side by about 1/2 an inch.
Once done, decide if you want to wear it for warmth...
Or for style.
For warmth or for style, this swirled cowl, is the perfect accessory for any fall day, for not only you, your little one or even their stuffed monkey.
Macy, the sleepy monkey, was disappointed Anthropology didn't have a cowl in her size. Fortunately, this pattern can be modified to fit even a stuffed monkey (while wearing bunny slippers or not).
