I have recently acquired severalvintage furs.  I don't have the usual hang-ups about furs, but most of them don't fit me.  I am very tall.  Does anyone have any ideas as what to do with these?  Thanks!

You could make a cute wrap, or make a bag out of it. I've used fur as edging on a big medieval over dress... but you probably aren't a renny....

I have a capelet that my great aunt made from an exsisting coat, long ago. She lined it in satin and ebroidered her initials in it.

I had a teddy bear made out of my Grandmother's mink stole.  One for me, and one for mother.  The lady that makes these does this with all types of vintage furs.  She charged me $75 total for both.

I never thought of stuffed animals.... that would be neat.

I got the suggestion (from the peanut gallery) that maybe you could make a blanket. If you have enough colors, you could make a cool patchwork.
