B.A.R.K. Production Journal: Craft Fur

The hair for this cat puppet's head is made from a wonderful craft fur. I like it because it's long, colorful, and has a great texture. I have been able to find this fur in three colors blue, cream and orange. A while back I used the cream for the cheeks of Tiger from Tiger and Mousedeer. Fur like this can't be found at your run of the mill fabric store - I bought this at Michael Levine, a huge fabric store located in Los Angeles's Fashion District. When selecting fur for your project don't settle for the cheep stuff, look for something with a unique color or texture.

Using a razor blade (see previous post) cut the fur out and sew it to the top of the head.
