WINTERS COMMING……….

Winters come quickly in the last few days. I like to put away the summer throws and bring out the winter ones, change the cushions and generally make the lounge more warm and cosy.
A few years ago I collected old damaged fur coats. I cut them up & patched worked them into a throw for the back of the couch. I love it and it’s one of my favourite pieces to pull out for winter. Until this morning I had forgotten why I “vowed” to never do another one!
Cutting and sewing fur is not for the faint hearted. I do it outside in my studio. Fur goes every where, and I mean every where! This time I had the vacuum beside me and vacuumed as I cut.
Leather weakens as it is sewen, so you have to be careful not too pull too hard when your un-picking the jacket, & sew with the biggest stitch on the machine. Also it’s not easy to get the fur through a normal home sewing machine!
