New beaver mittens
« on: January 18, 2020, 10:43:58 AM »
The wife made these for me from beaver and elk hide and I am super proud of them.  We even had the weather so that I could wear them instead of just petting them  :)

I havenít figured out how to add more than one photo to my post but I will post more

Not lined at all.  They are sized to wear another pair of gloves/mittens under them.  My experience with gloves is that they can get really stinky and I wanted to be able to change out liners quick and easy.

Very nice work!
Did she hand sew, or use a machine?

Hand sewn.  She is getting it figured out and building some momentum.  She finished a pair for herself today and has a couple of more pairs for a buddy and his wife to get started.

I would like to get her a fur machine, but I am just in the research phase.  If anyone has any leads or suggestions on one to get speak up.

I have one.I bought it new from a place in seattle. the C.H.Holderby co. 206-622-6646
The brand is  Typical the model is Gp5-IV overseaming machine
I looked at old used ones and they would barely sew coyote. This thing will sew beaver.It is super fast. There is a learning curve for sure and i'm still in it. My daughter and i are making pillows and going to make bed spreads to sell.
Fur to fur isn't bad. The pillow we did a different material on the back and it wants to feed one side faster then the other causing it to wrinkle and move a little. The machine is excellent though, I think the operater is the issue.I can't find anything on line that shows techniques on useing them.
