Fur products that are out of fashion, become small for your children, or have a subtle look are easy to upgrade or change into the necessary interiors, and stylish things. You can change the fur if it has become small by enlarging it with leather or thick material.
Here’s what a worn thing turns into if desired:
- Sleeveless jacket;
- Glasses, etc.
DIY leather vests – a variety of models
What is warm will soon change depending on how worn out you are, your desire, and your imagination. If the fur is torn on the sleeves at the bottom, you can easily change it into a vest.
There are many types. The following is suggested:
- An easy option for changing fur;
- A model with sleeves and sweater collar;
- Extravagant vest with shirt inserts;
- Sleeveless jacket made of dense material or leather with a fur pocket and shawl collar.
Fur vest for beginner fashion designers
One of the easiest ways to create this is to tear off the sleeves, and cut off the bottom. Next, you need to sew the lining with the fur part in these places. It is better to do this by hand, as not every sewing machine can withstand such a thickness of the product and the seam can be visible.
Use a large needle and a solid thread to fit your skin. It needs to bend slightly on the wrong side (2-4 cm) and sew with lining over the edge. That’s it, you have a beautiful fur vest. You can fence it with a leather belt and the designer is ready.
The idea came from a sweater with a neck
If you have something that is already tired of the order and a little more time, then try to make fashionable clothes out of it. As in the previous case, remove the sleeves and cut the bottom of the fur. You must also part with her collar. If you do not want this, leave it in place.
Next, peel off the sleeves and collar of the sweater. This product is most likely to be knitted, to avoid loosening the loops, cloud over the sleeves, and at the bottom of the collar with overclocking or on the hands. Now place the top of the right sleeve between the coat and the lining on the right armhole and sew it there.
So when you wear the vest, the threads on the armhole do not break when you sew on knitted sleeves, just pull them so that they are slightly in the assembly. If the top of the sleeves is the same or larger than the armhole, you do not need to do this. In order for the new vest to wear freely, if the collar of the sweater is in one layer, you must cut it vertically at the front. Then fold on the right side and sew right and then left a cut on the wrong side. Turn to the right side and sew from neck to coat. To keep the neck cool, sew a loop on the right side of the upright collar and a button on the left. You can also attach a hook or sew a zipper from the bottom of the vest up to the neck.
Sew the fastener to the pocket of the new clothing. If you took off the collar of the coat, you do not need to sew the collar of the sweater on it.
Fur vest with knitted inserts
If your favorite fur coats have a completely shabby look, turn them into a leather vest like this. In the model on the left, you can see that the cuts were first cut out, and then these parts were knitted and sewn in place.
Cut only the skin itself, lining, and insulation, if any, go. You can restore the fur coat with other skin spots. This looks very modern. After cutting off the worn area, attach the removed part of the fur to another fur coat and fold the fluffy sides. Draw the outline of the old on the flesh of the new fluffy patch.
When replacing a worn place on a product, exposing the insert, cut it out, and do not forget to add sewing space, it should be 7-10 mm on all sides. If you are going to use overclock seam then 5 mm is enough. If your old outerwear has been torn with the fastener, replace it with a new one. It is also knitted or cut from new fur or from tabs of the same old fur that has not been touched over time.
If you have a piece of leather, sew it on a leather vest and you will get a new-fashioned sleeveless jacket, as in the model on the right. You can sew a vest and then decorate it with fluffy spacious pockets and collars.
Boots with fur, warm insoles
If only the bottom of the sleeves is rubbed, not the elbow, then turn them into fluffy tops that are worn over boots. This way you will see a few things from one fur coat and flaunt fashionable and warm shoes. It is necessary to cut off the lower worn part of the sleeves and sew the skin and lining together. You can sew in this place knit handcuffs. If the sleeves are narrow, tear off the lining and use only fur.
And such warm insoles will warm your soles (see photo above). They need a lot of furs, take the rest of it from sewing the vest. If the post comes from your boots, take it then they become templates. Attach it to a thick piece of cardboard, and draw it out. Then lay on the flesh and also the outline with a pen. Cut from cardboard and leather parts, fold them and sew along the edge. If the insert cannot be removed, place the foot on a sheet and outline. Then put the blank in the boot, change the pattern to fit the shoe, and use it as a template.
