Crafting With Cat Hair: Are you a cat owner that's always covered in cat hair? Now you can put it all to good use by making little finger puppets and decorations out of it!
Can you believe this, AND, it's serious?
Crafting With Cat Hair was first published in Japan in 2009 and it's just been translated and released here.
We are obviously in need of more solutions for a growing cat hair crisis, and also more tiny puppets and change purses!!
In the first project, Tsutaya shows us how to make felt with cat hair, beginning with how you brush it from the cat.
Wrapping layers and then shaping the material with soap and water give us a solid piece of cat hair fabric, which we've made in the shape of a finger puppet as we go.
The other technique involves needle felting with cat hair, which is how many of the objects are decorated. Tsutaya also has instructions for cleaning and caring for the finished crafts.
Every family has a crazy cat person for whom this would make a perfect gift. If you can't think who it is, or this all seems normal it is probably you!
