I have done it the old fashioned way with rabbits. The skin of small varmits is very thin so its pretty difficult to get a good finished product. Mine all turned out dried and crispy but the fur looked good. You can scape it with a knife and then soak it in turpinitine for a few days. Its a natural solvent. then dry it and work/rub cornmeal into it. That brings out the gloss of the furr. There are some pretty good instructions online to tan hide the old native american ways. You could try those as well.
