What to do with tanned deer hides?

My Dad passed away a while back. My 2 sisters and I were just recently going through his belongings. He had 5 deer hides that he had tanned a years ago and at the time had the idea that he was going to get a jacket made when he had enough of hides. My sisters thought it would be nice to each get something made out of them (gloves, slippers). I said we could do that and I would get information about it. Where can I find out the cost? Can I order them my self and ship the hides or would it be better to maybe go to a taxidermist? Since they are already tanned I figured I wouldn"t need to go to a taxidermist. Any answers to these questions would be of great help.
THANKS

I was going to say check out Uber glove company. But it seems they went bankrupt and are not taking in orders this year until the new owners get it back on its feet. They made stock items from your hides or you could order custom jackets, pants, gloves ect.

Maybe one of the guys on the primitive forum or the muzzle loader forum can help you out. Those guys often wear and make their own buckskins and possible bags. Might be worth a shot.

This place makes clothing and gloves from your tanned hides or they will tan them for you. I have no idea what they charge, but if you find out, please post your findings.

hope it helps.
