Fur Coat From Roadkill


via Instagram: http://shltr.net/1IbPTBB

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?

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.

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

Lloyd Kahn said...

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