Faux Zhivago: self-drafted faux fur hat

December 29, 2014

December is definitely a month for quick satisfying projects that can slot into the madness of work, shopping, entertaining and visiting! And a faux fur hat is most welcome when the temperatures take a dive into freezing.

December is also a great month for finding the best range of faux fur. This fur is so soft and silky and feels so real I had to double check the backing to make sure it wasn’t! It’s a bit pricey but you really don’t need much more a hat of this kind.

I’ve got fond memories of snuggling up on the sofa with my mum, lots of years ago, watching Doctor Zhivago on the telly. So this hat is cosy in more ways than one. It has a wonderful vintage vibe but I can’t attribute it to any one era. 50’s? 60’s? 70’s? or 2015’s? Maybe it’s just timeless!

I’m planning on posting a tute and a pattern real soon so keep an eye on my blog for more details.

In the meantime, I’d like to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year! x
