When I can, I reuse. But if I end up with a piece that I'm unlikely to wear again, I refashion it into something more useful.
That was EXACTLY the case with my red faux fur shawl.
|Faux Fur Shawl|
|Shawl with lining|
I wanted a sleeveless vest so I folded in the arms

|All cut out.|
|Fold in half|
To make the front of the vest, I used the back panel as a pattern.
Fold the fur shawl in half. Cutting on the fold, cut the front panel.

|Cut the neckline for the front of the vest|
|Cut the front panel into 2 pieces|
|Sew the shoulders|
Sew the shoulder seams, Then sew down the sides.
My vest was too big, so I tailored it to fit my body.
To finish the project, turn and top stitch the collar, front and bottom seam. I did a zigzag stitch to finish the armholes.
