DIY Fur Fashion | Furever Furs Craft Kits

There’s something both fascinating and refreshing about high school and college students’ love of fashion and fur. The moment the weather’s temperature drops a smidgen, the fur stuff comes out in droves with great sartorial flair and conviction. I’m not solely talking about the de facto fur-trimmed parka hoods and collars that are now a stylish young adult’s uniform.

Have you seen them sporting the latest fur trends… and not only vintage? Vests and jackets are hands-down favorites, and nowadays many more satchels, bags and various accessories are all the rage. Fashion lives on originality and self-expression and these budding fashionistas know how to creatively feed the look and work it! And now there’s a way for them to exercise that creativity and fabricate their own fur fashions and accessories from used fur garments (talk about the ultimate in recycling!).

To see what the buzz was all about, we sat down for a demonstration from the maestro himself, Tom Moriber. So you know, the “Fur Recycling Kit” comes in two versions – The Start Up Fur Recycling Kit and The Complete Fur Recycling Kit. Both box sets contain utensils, patterns and a how-to booklet and CD, easily breaking down each project step-by-step. Mr. Moriber worked on this concept for a few years to fine tune it and make it easy for anyone to follow. Even Martha Stewart would admit, “it’s a good thing!”

For those who want to tackle other projects or patterns, there are additional projects available that can be ordered directly from the Furever Furs website. Can you picture yourself reworking a thrift shop or flea market fur find, or maybe even grandma’s fur coat that hasn’t seen the light of day since she moved to Florida? Well, this kit will enable you to give an old garment new usefulness and add a dash of luxury and drama to any wardrobe or home.

Even if you don’t consider yourself “crafty,” this kit makes it so easy and so fun! They tell us even Mrs. Claus owns one to refashion the fur from some of her husband’s old suits!
