Thread: Fur Material

  1. #1

    Default Fur Material

    I used some fur fabric to make a tail that i got from a local store, turns out that it has a tenancy to pull apart in the structural stitching across the entire fabric . Mostly when there is an area that had to be cut though.

    Is this a general problem with furry types of materials or did i just buy cheap garbage?

    Bit of both?

    All furry fabric will shed fibers where it's been cut. However, sewing a seam 3/8-1/4" from the cut edge should be fine. The last furry fabric I used ran about $20/yd and it held together very well... I think that's around mid or higher priced.

    I'd have to agre with Tygon, it sounds like a bit of both. Shedding along the cut edge is normal, $20 isnt a bad price, though personally i wouldnt go for anything below $15. You also need to be wary as to the type of fur, try to go for the luxury / shag variants as cheaper fun fur tends not to last long at all and gives a very low quality finish.

    From what you've said it sounds like the backing itself is splitting across, in which case I hate to say it but it doesnt sound very good quality.

    Yeah, its the backing, and i'd agree, it seems like i bought junky stuff, at least it wasn't too much.

    It might be possible to seal the edges with a good glue before stitching the fabric.
    Or even using heat to melt the edge first. (Soldering iron ) ?
