Every now and then something comes along that makes me realise that there is so much going on in the world that I am simply not exposed to. Crafting with Cat Hair was one of these things.
First published, somehow fittingly, in Japan in 2009, Crafting With Cat Hair has now been translated to English and been given a western release so that English-speaking cat hair lovers the world over can put their cats to good use.
Not surprisingly, the first project is how to make a little version of your cat using their hair. The author starts off by showing you exactly how to harvest your cats hair, and then goes on to show you how to make finger puppets, change purses, knickknacks boxes, badges and even kitty portraits all using your cats hair.
I will actually admit, I was hugely sceptical when I was handed this book, but after giving it a read, you can tell that this was written by a person with a genuine love for cats, and just a little too much time on their hands. though I can’t think just who this remind’s me of…
Anyway, check it out, you might be pleasantly surprised.
