In joining two pieces of fur, select portions that have the fur nearly the same depth at the point of joining.

The fur must always run in the same direction. Butt the edges of the fur together and join with over-and-over stitches using strong linen thread.

Finish the outer edges of a fur trimming piece or banding by taping it. Lay the tape on the Fig. (6) Taping the edge of fur fur side of the piece and whip it to the edge with over-andover stitches. (See Fig. 6.) Then turn the tape onto the hide side. (See Fig. 7.). This rolls the edge of the fur.

In sewing the fur to the garment, the stitches are taken through the tape and the garment.
