I just recently dried a squirrel hide with borax and it turned out great but fairly stiff. Does anyone know of any patterns that uses squirrel body hair i found a squirrel leach but for that the hide has to be pliable and tanned. Is there any way to turn the hide i have now into the fur that is used. I still have several hides in the freezer to kill any bugs in the fur and was wondering if there is a way to tan the hair easily and for more important cheaply.

Thanks alot,
