Do you like this softie with one giant eyeball? (from the Eggheads softie pattern)
How about this quilt block with a fleece bird/monster?
Both of them use appliqué onto faux fur or fleece to sew on those eyeballs.
This video showed you how to cut faux fur without leaving your sewing space looking like a Muppet abattoir, and how to sew the pieces together so all the lovely fur ends up on the outside of your softie (without tedious seam-picking).
Now I’m showing you how to appliqué directly onto the fur. This is a good way to attach eyes, mouths, bellies – any smooth surface you want on top of all that fur. It’s surprisingly easy!
Appliqué onto fur. Give it a try!
Then try this video to learn to appliqué fur onto regular fabric – great for bushy eyebrows. 🙂
