As I raise my rabbits for meat, I try to breed them for specific patterns and colors because I don't let anything go to waste. I tan the hides and use them for beautiful, hand sewn projects such as pillows, blankets, scarves, hats, and gloves. I also preserve the feet and tails for charms and the ears for dog treats. I waste nothing and these animals are cared for very well here at Sustainable-Dreams-Rabbitry.
The pillows listed here are for sale. The prices at this point are figured by how many rabbit pelts were used and not by adding my time to craft them. If you do a search on Google for Rex fur items, you will see the value in Rex fur. All of my sales go back into the rabbitry and the dream to achieve a self sustained homestead.
The black and white pillow is not Rex fur. It has 9 pelts in it and is stuffed with polyester fill. It's firm and is 25 inches X 12 inches. I am pricing this pillow at 5.00 per pelt used. $45.00
The brown patchwork pillow is castor with some opal color, real Rex fur. I am pricing it for 5 pelts used in it at 10.00 per pelt. $50.00
I will ship these pillows anywhere in the US for an additional cost of $10.00 sh. Payment can be made via PayPal for online purchases.
If you are a local and close to Slocomb AL. I will give details on pick up via text message at (334)479-2091.

I tried out brain tanning on a deer hide first. Well, not me, but my boyfriend did and I assisted. It was both our first times. After seeing the mistakes we made with our first brain tanned hide, I knew I had learned enough to get it just a bit better. Instead of a deer hide though, I decided to use a rabbit hide in order to see if brain tanning would be better or worse than alum tanning which I have been doing already with the rabbit hides.
Ive concluded that for rabbit pelts, I prefer the cleaner alum tan, but now, I must wait until hunting season to be able to compare some buck skins the same way.
Watch the video below and tell me what you think by commenting below. Which method would you prefer?
