I had a really nice coyote tanned that I want to stretch out for a throw for my sons bed. I have a couple of questions on how to do this.

What do you do when you get to the head? I don't want two jaw flaps on the side.

How do you split the legs to tie into the belly smoothly?

the jaw flaps just cut them off so it looks good don't use sisors but use a knife and cut from the leather side so you don't cut the fur

to make the leg cuts I assume that the skin is cased just cut is like you are skinning it open. have a book that covers this whole thing but I can't post it on here. :cry:

hope this helps
