I was sent two beautiful family minks, a lovely vintage mink stole, and a more unusual and very artistic mink coat with wonderful geometric designs on the back.
|I increased my "Christmas Teddy" pattern by 25%.|
You can see the size difference in the head patterns.
|This is the mink stole ... once it has been taken apart you can see how small it really is.|
This is one side of the stole.
The hairs on the mink stole are already short, so this teddy will not have very puffy cheeks.
|I've taken apart the unusually patterned mink coat|
|This is the back side.|
There dark fabric strips in between the thin leather pelts.
|Obvious striped pattern|
|Besides the thin pelts strips and the fabric between them, you can see that the pelts are also small strips sewn together.|
