(*note* to all my eco-friendly friends: I am aware that some of you are against fur, and I respect that, but I am a grown woman and I will use fur if I dang well feel like it.)

I have 4 rabbit pelts, 3 black, one white.....was going to craft for a renaissance festival...but I lost interest in going to those and I no longer attend faires. One of the black pelts is slightly cut up (tip: dont just cut fur with scizors unless you throw a tarp down, the hair goes everywhere!)

Any ideas on what to make?

You could make a little fur collar for on a sweater, jacket or coat.
Or a purse, if you're into fur purses.
Part of me wants to suggest something crazy like, "Cover some shoes with fur!" or "How about a fur covered lunch box?" Because if I had a bunch of fur lying around that I didn't want to wear, I'd want to do something really crazy or fun.

What were you planning on making for the festival? You could always make a variation of that  Smiley

There's discussion of an ipod cozy here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=46321.0 There's some tips about working with the pelts [including needle sizes, etc.]

I see by your profile that you're in Texas, which means that fur-lined mittens are likely not a priority. A rabbit lined muff would be fun for dress-up, but again, I'm not sure it ever gets cold enough there for one. You could trim things with it, like a boiled wool cape with pretty rabbit trim...A cuff would be soft and pretty, as would a little purse or bag. If you needed a random santa hat, it would be good for the fur trim on that too.

I suppose so...but I dont go to those things anymore....so how would I make it functional for everyday life? (i find most things  people wear to faire, are only acceptable to be worn at faire....)
