I bought this really old (vintage) fox pelt some time ago. Recently, I discovered that it was in really bad shape, litterally falling apart… The tail had to be sewn together in a really awkward way because “saving” the pelt is more important to me than making nice seams and stitches…
I’ve begun project savning old fox pelt, and it’s starting to come together. I had no idea how to do it, but something had to be done. I’m using leather needles and linen thread + fabric, trying to sew it to the hide in order to strengthen it a bit.At least the inside of the pelt will match my linen chemise 🙂 It was really hard to adjust the linen fabric to the shape of the hide. Found it easier to do as I go, hehe.
Have any of yoy guys got experience with this kind of work? I would deeply appreciate advice and tips!
Ps:I know that many people have really strong feelings about fur, and I can understand that. The fur that I’ve got is inherited or bought from vintage shops. I believe in making use of resources, but I never buy new fur. Eco conscious fur for the win!
