Yeah, you heard me right.
My childhood cat, O'Malley - an over sized mancoon, used to have so much matted hair that she would develop dreadlocks that we would spend hours working out.
She could ruin any black pair of pants in a matter of seconds.
Cut to the present, when I was asked to review Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with your Cat by Kaori Tsutaya.
I will say the author has definitely found her niche. The gathered cat hair is transformed into finger puppets, coin purses and pin cushions. And it certainly fits in with the new upcycling trend. The projects are creative, well-explained and the photographs do all of the projects justice.
While this is a must-have for any cat lover / crafter, my one criticism is that it is very cat heavy (what did I expect?) What I mean is, the finger puppets are all.....cats, the coin purses feature felted....cats and the pin cushion are decorated in...you guessed it....cats.
To a cat loving crafter, Crafting with Cat Hair is THE book to buy this holiday season. For the rest of us, we may need to wait for this niche to become a little more mainstream.
