How to Make a Vintage Dr. Zhivago (Faux) Fur Hat, Plus Removable Fur Cuffs and Collar

OK, so I just couldn’t help myself.

Rylee made this DIY fur hat look so amazing. And she did look like she should’ve been on the cover of Vogue, so I made a magazine cover for her. 🙂

And. It. Was. So. Much. Fun!



Plus, my ruggedly handsome husband and I have been watching the classic Doctor Zhivago up in the studio and now I want to wrap myself up in fur from head to toe.


Isn’t Rylee beautiful!!!!



You can use faux fur to make this hat or…………. if you happen to have a friend who gives you her grandmother’s real fur jacket that sadly had some moth damage, you could use that fur to make this fun winter hat. (Shhhhhhhhhhhhh, Christmas is coming and this might be a present for a certain friend.)

If you’re like me and want to cover everything in fur now, here are a couple of other fun fur projects to make for yourself or they would make great gifts, too.

Festive fur collar



 Have fun with fur!
