A couple of months ago, I bought a book on using cat fur for crafts. I thought it would be funny, but I found the crafts quite nice, so I've been trying some. I first made some finger puppets.
I ordered an inexpensive felting kit and made some pillows. Aren't they cute?
The purple fabric is a wool sweater, and the fringe on the one pillow was part of the sweater. I thought it added something interesting to the pillow.
The white kitty's fur is from our friend Laila. The gray kitty is a combination of Ringo and Benny. The orange balls on the right-hand pillow are from Lucy.
It's been interesting so far. Some cat's fur is easier to use for felting than others. Lucy's fur is just right, but she dislikes brushing so I don't have much from her.
Speaking of Lucy, she seemed to like my pillow.
|Paw of approval.|
Then I noticed her sitting in a strange way.
Ok, Lucy, if it works for you!
