Too Funny!

Have to share this great book I found with my art buddies who love to needle felt....and love cats too!  Although the technique would most likely work with soft doggy hair or bunnies or hamsters or gerbils or mice, etc. but we all know CATS RULE!

Is that just the funniest book you've ever seen?!  It has lots of very cool projects for you and your kitty
in addition to very clear instructions for needle felting.

Years ago, my sister had a large loom she wove blankets and other things on.  For awhile she collected her dogs' hair after she brushed them to weave it into the blankets she made for them.  I always thought that was weird. Thinking maybe she might view this as a bit odd, but we know different, right?!  I'd love to see pics of your treasures you make :)

This is hilarious! I had a big dog that was white and very fluffy and after I brushed him I would take the fur and put it outside for the birds to use in their nests. It was so cool to see bits of white fluff in the nests. One time I found an abandoned hummingbird nest with his fur in it!

Phoebe's fur is probably a little short for felting, yah? :) Guess you'll just have to find a friend for Phoebe! We had a birds in the neighborhood in California that would dive bomb the cats and rip it out for their nests. Poor cats were afraid to go outdoors!
