Knowing how to repair a fur coat yourself may not be the easiest thing in thing in the world, but when done right it is absolutely worth the time and effort. Fur coats can be extremely costly so you may not want to shed out extra money to take your coat to the repair man. Either way if you have the time you can easily repair a fur coat your self. Here are a few steps that will help you to repair a fur coat yourself.
To repair a fur coat yourself, you will need:
- Fur coat
- Spare time
- Leather needle
- Cord thread
- Clean out the hole. Take your scissors and cut the hole to make sure it is even or to get rid of any dirt patches. The repair on your fur coat will last longer if the hole is clean before you begin repairing it.
- Repairing the hole. Place the cord thread in the leather needle as though you are going to sew an item. Make a knot at the end of the leather needle. Start by grabbing both sides of hole and placing the needle through it. Make sure that you start on the inside of the fur coat so that the knot is not visible. Make your stitches as small as possible by keeping them close together. Fur that has been sewn is pretty unnoticeable. If you are happy with the way your coat looks then you are done repairing your fur coat.
