I had a blast sharing my project at my table;
Thank you for all the folks who stopped by 🌸❤️! I met folks from all over Alaska and out of State like Texas. I sold my fur hat and several of Earrings by Lana 🌸❤️.
Here are last minute crafts composed in one hour;
Made out of willow, caribou fur, wolverine fur, wolf fur and glass beads.
My daughter made earrings she designed. Thanks to friends and strangers who bought the some earrings from my Lana 🌸❤️.
I have to adjust the hood and add the tassels and aiming to be completed before the North American Dog races in Fairbanks Alaska. Here is nearly completed parka:
Have a safe weekend at the Festival of Native Arts and every where else🌸. Piurci!
Getting very close 😲! I finished sewing the wrist with otter calfskin otter in that order.
I had to crimp the squirrels to fit the width of the cuffs/wrists. It fits the length of my arms. If my daughters grows with longer arms than me, it can be adjusted.
Quarter inch for width of Wolverine for the skirt. I think I succeeded with dark and light color fur for the Wolverine skirt.
Skirt is squirrel calfskin otter and Wolverine.
I have broken nearly a dozen #10 glove needles;
Most ended up in the trash but these are small collections I kept.
The next step is the ruff. I have been debating zipper or no zipper for the neck area; initially I wanted as traditional as possible and then I thought of comfortable wear. 🤔
I am going to sew as much as I can this weekend with rocky road ice cream breaks 😆. Enjoy coast like snow storm and be safe ❄️. Piurci!
