Luxury Craft Materials

I like to find interesting materials that artists and crafters can use in their creations. I recently came across a lovely mink jacket that was badly damaged across the shoulders. I brought it home and have offered mink remnants in my ETSY shop. But what do people make with remnants of mink? I searched through ETSY's handmade offerings. Here's what I found.

Inspired? What would you make with a remnant of luxurious mink?
