..Might make a pillow cover too because this faux fur is so soft and silky.
Why not have me transform it into something new that you will enjoy now and everyday? Contact me at elle Vintage email@example.com
I have just finished turning a muskrat fur coat — that probably hasn’t been worn in decades — into these stunning pieces.
It takes me about an hour and a half to take apart a coat and get it ready to make something. I prepped two coats today. One is a medium brown beaver coat and the other is a geometrically-cut mahogany mink fur coat. I’ll be making two pillow covers from each. See some of my other recycled fur and faux fur pillows here. I’ll definitely be making a couple of teddy bears too.
There is sO much going on inside a fur coat, and I have to take my time and a lot of care to not cut what I’m not supposed to cut! And since I don’t have a studio with a giant table, the floor it is. So..ow.
