Sparkly, furry scarf

A good friend and colleague of mine was invited to the wedding of another good friend and colleague.
He wanted to do something extra special, so we chatted about glittery fabrics. He managed to talk me down from a fully sequinned outfit, to a lavish sequinned scarf, with a fur trim (because winter weddings require fur trim)!

I found this wonderful rainbow sequin fabric (one sided) on ebay, and bought three metres. My brief was Doctor Who meets Priscilla Queen of the Desert meets Rocky Horror.
I found some cream faux fur attached to a ribbon, and decided to double the fabric over lengthways so the scarf was reversable, and a little narrower. I used just over two metres of the fabric (the remaining bit has been earmarked for a skirt or something)!

I was really pleased with how this came out. My poor hand turned machine did struggle a bit with two layers of sequins plus bulky fur, but valiantly battled on.

Here are some pictures of it at the wedding – it had loads of compliments, and was quite a talking point! What do you think?

Many thanks to @j0nnymac and @MrJezzalinko for being such willing models.
