The entire pattern is sewn at 3/8″.  Print the pattern and trace the pieces on the back of the fur.  Pay attention to the direction of the nap.  The desired direction is indicated on the pattern.

Step One:  Sew the front and back

Join the front and back together using long pins along the widest part of the pattern which is the bottom of the tote.  Push the hair down and pin the jersey part of the fur together.  Sew at 3/8″.small fur tote

Step two: Sew the sides

Pin the sides together starting on the top and continue pinning every half and inch.  Sew at 3/8″.  Pay special attention when sewing the curves.  small fur tote

Step three: Make the handles

Cut the handles.  One side can be longer than the other, but this is optional.  The pattern is drafted for the two size options. small fur toteSew the handles using a small zigzag.  Turn the handles inside out with the help of a loop turner.  Pin the handles to the fur side of the bag where the seams meet.

Step Four:  Making the lining

Fuse the medium weight interfacing to the lining pieces before sewing.  Then, sew the lining the same way you did the fur.  Except that you will leave a 2 1/2″ gap on one of the sides to be able to turn the small fur tote right side out.

    I made one with fleece and lined it with a medium weight interfacing and cotton. Came out great! Thank you! It is going to make a great Christmas present for a special little girl.
