Fur Coat From Roadkill

Just laid out most of my roadkill skins with an eye to making a coat. Problem is, I hate to cut off the faces, especially foxes, Bobcats. May just pin together, keep rearranging…just think, these were just all going to rot on road…

    Have a leather vest custom made with selected pelts on the front as panels.

    I only hit 2 of these 20 or so animals…

    Lloyd, I have the idea that I have seen pictures of coats made out of entire pelts (head/tail included),and they were often pieced together with heads at the bottom? Maybe it is easier to configure?

    this is the only link I could find somewhat showing same.


    The other idea I had, maybe it would be easier to make mukluks out of them?

  4. Your blog is the first thing I check on the computer … and it often sends me off exploring or, in this case, revisiting. Thus, just finished listening to Jean Craighead George's My Side of the Mountain with Christian Rummel's pitch-perfect narration. I used to assume that all kids dreamt of running away to the woods. Anyway, I post this in the (unlikely) event you didn't already read it when it first came out in 1959.

  5. Is that a grey house cat at the bottom? What's the spotted brown one?

    Grey one is squirrel. Spotted one on lower right is spotted skunk. No house cats!
