WILD THINGS: fur // kid's clothes week


Hi everyone!

It’s Diana again, from Miss Castelinhos. This week, Miranda already showed you how to play around with animal faces and bodies… So cute! Loved the shark teeth!… Today, I’m going to show how you can add (faux) fur to your kids outfits. You can make a full garment, or just add a small detail. I divided this theme into four categories: Fur vests, Fur detail, Fur accessories and Sherpa. Let’s do this! 😀

What better way to get started, then with a beautiful fur vest! You can never go wrong with a vest. Have fun with it… Add a hood or cap sleeves, make it reversible… Also, be bold and use a coloured fur. Let your imagination run WILD!


1. Faux fur vest; 2. Bunny vest; 3. Faux fur cropped jacket; 4. Curly fur vest; 5. Reversible faux fur vest; 6. Faux fur vest with a hood

If you think a fur vest is too warm for spring, why not do a little refashion! Add a fur trim to a plain hoodie and it will surely stand out. Besides, boys can wear fur, and this is a great way to do it! Instead, you can add a fury animal application to a sweater or t-shirt.


1. Faux fur hoodie refashion; 2. Vest with fur; 3. Amelie for boys

Accessories can be a great source of fun. You can add a small pom-pom to a beanie or hat. Or make a matching mother-daughter scarf, using animal shapes or plain fur. Turn those boring sneakers into the WILDest shoes in your kid’s closet!


1. Faux fur infinity scarf; 2. Removable fur lined high tops; 3. Faux fur pom-pom beanie; 4. Fox scarf

If you are not confortable using fur, Sherpa is a very good replacement. It’s not as warm, but just as stylish. Combine it with a floral print or pastel colours, for a trendy spring look. This fabric is so soft, it’s perfect for a baby sewing project, like a blanket or a bonnet. It also feels wonderful as a robe lining or a cozy cowl. But if you prefer sewing something unexpected,  try some leg warmers!

Is fur something you like to sew with? Or have you never tried it? Why not give it a go… It will be fur-tastic!… Couldn’t resist! ;D

    Ooh, what fun! I like the idea of adding a fur animal shape. I think my nephew would love something with fur on it, but I can’t figure out a good way to incorporate it into a boy outfit. The animal shape might just do it.

    You have such an eye to catch all the amazing stuff! 🙂 Because of you I will definitely have to make a few vests for my girls, and I have to tell you I have never been very fond of vests… 🙂 And also something with sherpa… Great post Diana!
