|Unfortunately most of this coat can not be used to create a teddy or other animal.|
Why? Because the majority of the coat is a chevron pattern where just a small strip is
fur and the largest area is leather.
|The leather strips are wider than the fur strips.|
|Inside of coat ... thin strips of fur and leather sewn together in a chevron pattern.|
|There are larger pelt areas that can be used: the collar, the cuffs, the shoulders, the upper back.|
|I will need to cut the coat apart to see how much fur I have to work with|
|I'm not sure what I will be making using this cross-cut mink.|
I will make some suggestions and Laura will have to decide.
|The body of the coat already makes a nice mink throw!|
|This is what I have left to use to make a mink creature ...|
obviously something black and white.
Any other ideas?
