For the polar bear, we used faux fur fabric to
make this project extra soft and snuggly. You can embroider on faux
fur, but it takes a bit of extra care. We'll show you how!
To get started, cut a piece of fabric large
enough for your pattern, with enough extra around the edges that
you'll be able to easily hoop and embroider. For the polar bear, our
fabric is 16" wide by 19" tall. The nap of the fur should run
lengthwise (so you can "pet" it the long way).
Spray a piece of temporary spray adhesive, and
smooth it onto the back of the faux fur fabric.
