Recently, as a gift from a brother to a sister, we received a request to make mittens from a beloved mother’s treasured fur coat. In our customer’s own words:
Rita, the mittens are for my sister. I think the light mink would be nice since that is from my mother’s coat. Thanks, Father Alan
At ReMinkie, we love new and exciting challenges! So we were absolutely delighted to make mittens from the fur of a treasured coat. Ultimately, we are even more delighted that our customer is pleased with the result. In his own words, he writes:
Rita, the mittens are so beautiful. My sister loved them, not only because of their quality, but because they are from my mother’s coat. I will send a picture when it is cold and and the snow is deep. Thank you for your good work. It is a blessing for us. ~ Father Alan
If you have any special requests, please let us know. We love to transform fur coats or treasured clothing into custom keepsakes. We make scarves, hats, pillows, blankets, throws, quilts, memory bears, and more.
Mittens – Front and Back Photos
Below are front and back photos of the fur mittens. What a wonderful way to repurpose a loved one’s furs! These will keep the daughter warm in winter, and remind her of her dear mother every time she puts them on.
If you have furs hanging in closets, don’t let them go to waste. Give the gift of a keepsake to yourself and your loved ones. If you’ve got an unusual request, don’t hesitate to ask! We welcome the invitation to create a cherished keepsake for you. We have even made horse decor from equestrians’ horse blankets.
