Craft Post: Deer Accessories

For several months, I have been on a quest for faux deer fur to make a collar, similar to one Innocent World made. It surprised me how many different types of mythical tiger furs I could find, but no simple spotted deer fur! I wanted the piece not only for myself, but for a student-produced fashion show that I will be designing for at the end of the school year. After scouring the internet to no avail, I came upon this little treasure!  A toddler's Bambi jacket! for $8.50 shipped! My heart leaped with joy! When it arrived, I promptly cut it up and made a large and small collar. I also plan to make ear muffs, boot toppers and maybe a muffler if I have enough fabric...probably not ;)

Plans for earmuffs. The headband looks like chocolate icing, doesn't it?

  1. I love this fake fur collar from Innocent World, it's a dream to have it too!
    By the way, where did you find this little cute jacket?
    What's the max child size available for it?

    You did a great job!
