Sewing fur is so easy even a caveman can do it. Learn how in this article from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 5. Fur has improved over the millennia to the point that there isn’t even any hide tanning, just go to the fabric store and buy your favorite animal look-alike. You can sew a luxurious boa in an evening.

    I would like to make this boa but I have a question. I don't see how to turn the tube right side out. Usually instructions say to leave a seam not quite complete, turn the tube and hand sew opening closed. Is this what is intended? Ordinarily I would just do that but I am not so sure with faux fur..
