Default Homemade fur projects

I thought Id share this with the trapping folk. Home tanned marten mitts and trapper hat. hide is brain tanned elk. A lot of elbow grease and some on line patterns. Made myself including beading on mitts (YouTube is your friend). I have no interest in making for others, but thought Id post as it is all doable yourself. Much more rewarding as well.

Very nice work, I have patterns and material its finding the time to do it all lol. I have done everything from scratch from trapping to tanning my furs and hides but the sewing part is not my favorite lol. But maybe its time to do it anyway lol. Good job on your stuff! Thanks for sharing and links.....
