Video – Part 3 – Making A Fur Ruff – Tracing Out the Pattern Lines for the Fur Ruff

  • Measuring the Fur

As with anything you must measure the hood, and coordinate the ruff size with the hood size. Below is a general guideline for hood sizes:

  1. child sizes 2 – 4 = 2 x 24 inches
  2. child sizes 6 – 12 = 2 x 26 inches
  3. child size 14 = 3 x 29 inches
  4. adult size = 3 x 29 inches

As a precaution, it is a good idea to take a cloth measuring tape and measure the circumference of the hood, and ADD two inches additionally. Then measure the length of the hide from the neck to the hind quarters to see if it is long enough. If not, then you will have to purchase a second fur ruff material. As a general rule, one is enough for a child’s ruff; but two may be needed for an adult ruff, especially if you are using a small animal such as a rabbit or a small fox.
