    Thank you. I have a 12 year old daughter that would swoon for a muff. I think I will make one for her birthday.
    Thank you.

    I have a piece of an old mink coat that my aunt donated years ago. Would this muff pattern help me to use that lovely piece (I know, I would have to endure the “politically incorrect” label, but the fur is just languishing in a drawer …) Thanks! I am a real lazybones sewer and label myself “historically interested”, not historically active, but your e-mails etc. are very inspiring and I keep contemplating the possibilities with your classes. Thank you for just being there!

      Thanks Trisha. Yes, you’ll find hints of cutting and sewing fur; although, the pattern IS for faux fur and cutting skins are a bit different but still similar. Good luck in whatever you do with it!
