coyote rug

Submitted by nick on 2/2/05 at 11:04 AM. ( )

I'am going to try my fist attempt at making a coyote rug or any rug for that matter.I looked through the archives and still have a few questions.Do you fill the tail or leave it flat.I know you have to sew or glue around the coyote but what about the head.I'am doing a open mouth one.How do you do the head do you just glue it on or sew it.If so how.Also what about sewing around the feet.Any help would be great.Thanks.Nick

Hey Nick, I am a proefessional rugmaker for the industry and would be glad to help you out.Machine sewing the felt to the rug is definitly the best way to go. Make sure the tail is split open and leave it flat.A heavy duty hot glue for attaching the head form to the felt is the way to go, then add a few wood screws around the felt into form to assure yourself of no separation. Small amounts of heavy duty hot glue on the pads or just below them, to attach to the felt works fine, you can re-inforce with a few stitches through the felt and leather.Call or e-mail me if you have any more questions or I'ld be glad to send you a price list.
