Lightbulb Otter cape- I need help!

I am tryin 2 make a otter cape 4 my outfit. I am wondering how to attach the backing cloth 2 the otter, can it be glued? I purchased some red melton cloth 4 backing. Is there a trick to this job that anyone knows?

Otter skins being sacred need to be sewn on to the backing, on a cape that moves with you the glue would not last. As well when you sew the fur to the material ,, go in staggers through the center area by tacking the leather gently to the material, the edge needs to be sewn with about 1/4 inch stitches. Slowly fold the skins over the material and stitch the middle of the fur first to stop the lift effect, then sew the whole edge after. You may even included a small pocket in the material for tobacco of course.
