    Charming cat fun!

    If you've ever seen the amount of hair that comes off your cat when you brush it, especially in the spring, you've probably wondered if there's anything useful to do with it. In Crafting with Cat Hair, author Kaori Tsutaya shares her discovery of how to use cat hair to make super easy felt crafts. Felt is incredibly simple to make (even out of cat hair!), only needing tangled fibers that you compress to turn into delightful crafts. Most of the crafts in this book don't even need sewing skills, really only using a using a felting needle and sponge to complete the projects. Crafting with Cat Hair includes instructions on how to make charming finger puppets and mini portraits of your cat entirely out of cat hair and then goes on to crafts like tote bags, mittens and gloves that you can apply the cat felt on top of. The book also contains several two page spreads of cat facts from why cats have no smell, to the differences between a topcoat and an undercoat. And the back of the book includes profiles of the sweet felines who "donated" hair to the book. My favorite project was the lovable three-dimensional mini portraits you can make of your own cat. I can't wait to make one of my Siamese kitten once he's sheding enough hair, his portrait will be (almost) as cute as he is!

    Crafty Ideas... one never knows

    I am not a crafty person (last in line when God was handing out talent in that area), but I do have a cat. And she Sheds! I brush her often and with her offerings my friends are trying out the projects. Rather, I hang around for support, snack, and drinks while they have fun. I never realized what you could do with cat hair besides complain about it. The finger puppets are great for kids.
