Fabrics and notions you’ll need to sew a zipper in Cuddle® minky fabric and faux fur fabric

These products can be substituted for whatever you have on hand, but here is what Teresa recommends for her zipper tutorial:

  • ½ yard of faux fur (sample created with Luxury Shag)
  • 18” Feather-fil pillow form (Fairfield)
  • Grey polyester thread
  • 90/14 Stretch needle
  • ByAnnie's Stiletto/Pressing Tool
  • Clover pins
  • Wonder Clips
  • Famore scissors
  • Hand sewing needles
  • Acrylic ruler (6” x 12” or larger)
  • Felt tip marker
  • OLFA SAC-1 craft knife
  • Zipper
  • Blue painter's tape
  • Wonder Tape (Dritz)
  • Fusible interfacing

Instructions for installing a zipper in Cuddle® minky fabric and faux fur fabric

When putting a zipper in Cuddle® 3 or Luxe Cuddle® minky plush fabric: 

  • Reinforce the zipper area with a strip of fusible interfacing (such as Pellon SF101).
  • Use Wonder Tape (Dritz) to keep zipper in position while you sew.
  • Add Wonder Clips (Clover) if needed.

When putting a zipper in Luxe Cuddle® or faux fur: 

  • Reinforce the zipper area with a strip of fusible interfacing (such as Pellon SF101), if needed.
  • Consider using raw edge rather than turning under, and zig zag in position.
  • Serge edge, if desired, to flatten nap along raw edge.
  • Keep edge of fabric at least 1/8” from zipper teeth for easier opening/closing.
  • Some longer Luxe Cuddle® and faux furs may need to be trimmed near the zipper opening.

Fabric Requirements:

Notions & Supplies:

  • Clover Flower Head Pins
  • Optional: Clover Wonder Clips
  • Downloadable Infinity Scarf Sewing Pattern
  • Coordinating Polyester Thread (we recommend Mettler Threads or Superior Threads)
  • Size 90/14 Stretch Needle (we recommend SCHMETZ Needles)
  • OLFA Art Knife (OLFA SAC-1) or OLFA Rotary Cutter
  • Dritz Omnigrid Cutting Mat
  • Kai Scissors
  • Hand Sewing Needle
  • Walking Foot (recommended)

Instructions for sewing a Luxe Cuddle® Infinity Scarf (minky fabric scarf)

  1. Cut a strip of Luxe Cuddle® 18.5” width of fabric x 36” lengthwise from your yardage. You should be able to get 3 scarves from 1 yard of Luxe Cuddle®.
  2. Place your strip right side up on a flat surface.
  3. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise, right sides together. Pin well. Extend your stitch length to 3.0-3.5. Using a 3/8" seam allowance, sew along the length of the scarf, being sure to backstitch at the beginning and end. Turn right side out.
  4. Placing your hand on one end of the scarf, take the other end and flip it one time over, creating a twist in the middle.
  5. Starting at one end, begin turning your scarf wrong side out, taking care so that the twist in the middle remains.
  6. Continue turning the scarf wrong side out until the short ends meet. Your seams should be on opposite sides of each other.
  7. Pin at the seams, right sides together. Match up the rest of the edges and pin. Using a 3/8" seam allowance, sew along the ends of the scarf, leaving a 2" gap for turning. Be sure to backstitch when beginning and ending your seam.
  8. Gently turn right side out and hand sew the opening with an invisible or slip stitch.
  9. Wear with a casual outfit or add a brooch for a more classy look!
