DIY Nursery: Faux Sheepskin Faux Fur Rug with Pattern

DIY Nursery: Faux Sheepskin Faux Fur Rug with Pattern - Swoodson Says

I love the look of a fuzzy sheepskin rug, but I don’t love the prices! I was inspired by an old post on Young House Love and decided to DIY one. I saw this shaggy white poodle fabric in the remnant bin for $2 and got to work drafting a pattern! The way my remnant measured, it was only possible to make two long pieces, and then sew them together down the middle. You can’t really tell because of the fur! The finished product is 30.5″ tall and 32″ wide at the bottom. So, a yard of fabric would be fine if you didn’t want to slice and dice it!

  1. Any tips for sewing the pieces of the faux fur together? I have to make a costume for my daughter for the play she’s in using that same type of faux fur, and I’ve never sewn faux fur before. For that matter, I haven’t sewn much period, although I have been able to read and figure out most patterns I’ve tried.

    1. Hi Sherree! Wow, this is an old post. I honestly have had no issues sewing fur – sometimes if the pile is longer, you have to be sure and keep it from getting caught in the seam, but with something like this “poodle” fur, it should just sew like normal fabric! I hope it goes well 🙂 Good luck!
