An excerpt:

"A little fur goes a long way in creating an air of luxury. Use fur accessories sparingly. A little fur hat worn with a simple tweed dress, topped with a small fur collar; or a fur hat which matches the fur trim on a cloth coat are very effective...Fur may be carefully matched and sewed together by a domestic sewing machine...Use a fine needle and a loose tension..."


The antique and vintage ribbons, threads, fabrics, blocks, tools, etc., can be found on eBay quite readily. You just have to hunt a little bit! :) Or, of course, you can utilize contemporary tools and materials found at a near by fabric, craft or hobby store…
