Meet the Maker
Furrier and owner of Darling Leather and Fur
I love sewing beautiful and practical things with wild fur, in my home studio in Southeast Michigan.
My industrial fur sewing machine is a big part of my sewing team! This machine is made just for sewing fur, and is different than traditional sewing machines because the needle moves back and forth towards the user instead of up and down!
Juki LU 563
My Juki is an industrial leather sewing machine, it has a walking foot with needle feed which is needed for sewing materials with a lot of 'drag' like leather. I use this machine for leather sewing, and for other thick materials.
My Babylock is a very nice home-grade sewing machine. I use it for all of my general fabric sewing, like linings.
I am so happy with all the items I got. Definitely looking to telling friends about it and purchase more in the future.
This pattern and Video are very easy to follow and thought out well. Thank You
I found the tutorial very detailed and easy to follow. If you take your time and start with professionally tanned hides you will be impressed with the end product. I made a set of coon mittens for myself and fox my young son and both patterns and size charts were spot on.
These Patterns were a great help! Quality patterns and saved me so much time and waisted leather! Thank you for making this information available and the time you took putting in all together.
Very nice and helpful
Great thorough and easy to follow tutorial and the patterns are awesome! I am a rookie fur sewer, I have been trapping for about 10 years now and I have always sent my fur out to be tanned so that i could make items out of them myself. Well thanks to Darling I am now most of the way through my FURst 😉 pair of beaver mitts! Thank you and I look forward to the bomber hat pattern!
I am currently making my first pair and I LOVE THE PATTERN AND WONDERFUL DIRECTIONS! PLEASE PROVIDE PATTERNS FOR THE TROOPER HAT AND MOUNTAIN MAN HAT!! I WILL PURCHASE THEM IMMEDIATELY! THANK YOU!
Rebecca does such a great job explaining in detail on the instructions and the tutorial is so organized and well presented. 10/10!! Can’t wait to see what other projects become available.
Turned out great and the wife loved them. Absolutely will buy from them again in the future.
I gave a beaver fur can cooler to my son in law and he loved it Everything from ordering,to the gift giving was easy and on time BIG thumbs up from me !!!
The Coozies are awesome.
I ordered two pair of badger fur earrings for my daughters and they loved them I’m extremely happy with all the products I ordered and plan on ordering more in the near future
Good quality, price, and arrived quickly! I need to save some premium furs from our Illinois hunts and have Darling make some custom gear.
