Land Otter trimming

I am finished with the main part of fur, sewing the squirrels! Moving onto to the otter and calfskin, sewing them onto the wrist and bottom trims.

Otter was cut 1 inch wide for the wrist and all around the bottom.

Also 1 inch for calfskin on the bottom trims. 2.5 inches for the wrist.

I sewed the calfskin to the bottom front and hopefully I’ll have time to do the back side this evening.

Here is a live flower from my husband and girls;
