Fix a damaged fox ear by CabinetCuriosities Fix a damaged fox ear by CabinetCuriosities
Well, I fixed Aurinkos second ear today and thought I could make a short tutorial. Don't know if that helps in any way ;)

So step by step:

1. Find an ear
Well, stupid step - that is something which is absolutely clear.
I used amber fox ears. You see, they don't have to be from exact this color.

2. Look how much you have to cut
I put the ear against the fur across the grain to see where the intact fur begins and the bald leather starts. You can save a lot material from the old ear with that.

3. Cut it
Stroke the fur bag and put it between two fingers so when you cut the leather you are not going to cut the fur. Make a straight cut. You should now have a good line to sew the new ear on.

4. Sew it
Again, stroke the fur bag. Start to sew the ear in one corner as far as you can. The fur will easily go in the cut and if you don't remove it you'll have strange hair on the backside of the ear. Use the needle to remove it from there. You don't have to hold the hair the whole time. Just keep sewing and remove it with the needle from time to time. Finish sewing at the other corner of the leather side.

Finished!

That was maybe the most senseless tutorial ever :)
Sorry!

Hey I have an assortment of cut and raw rocks and minerals. I still need to clean and identify them, but when I do, would you happen to be interested in a purchase or trade?

Jap, das sind die von dir :)
Habe mir heute mal ans Herz gefasst, nachdem er ja ewig mit nur einem herumhing, auch das zweite Ohr anzunähen.
