While digging through boxes in my basement, I came across tons of fur. Raccoon and oppossum pelts, coyote, fox, raccoon, and bobcat tails and faces, and fur scraps. What am I going to do with all this fur?! Hey! Why not make softies with it?!
These are my first 2. I'm working on 2 ferrets for a custom request (using my raccoon pelt and oppossum pelt - I'll post them when they're finished).






The first one is made with faux fur and a coyote tail. The second with tweed, microsuede, and a raccoon tail.
Kinda unique, eh?

They are adorable, yet terrorfying!

There is nothing wrong with reusing old furs, yet I couldn't bring myself to even touch these. How did you find the furs to work with?

I can't figure out why these make me feel so strange  Huh
