stuck for Christmas gifts - a solution

Winter blues?
No worries... a little gem has arrived from Amazon to fill those dark, damp evenings.
Kaori Tsutaya has created this wonderful little book - 'Crafting with Cat Fur'.
Yep, I wish I had thought of it first.

I fancy making this hat and scarf adorned with miniature Darcy and Bingley icons

So, first, take one excessively fluffy and willing cat...

.. and if possible, maybe a second one (in this case less willing)

... introduce them to the delights of the book... in any which way..

commence fur collection...

... and sew accordingly.

(watch this space for the result but please make allowances for my rubbish abilities in the crafting department)

Fancy a go?


  1. So how much fur is required for a hat and scarf? Because we think that would be a lot of fur!

    We'll definitely be watching this space. :-)

  2. That is wonderful! I think I'll have to get that book now :D Thank you!

  3. WOW! Really? We want to check out this book, and are looking forward to seeing your Darcy and Bingley hat and scarf set! :)

  4. MOL Darcy and Bingley and Mom,
    what a great post. Earlier this year Mom crocheted a scarf that had several rows of my lucious gray furs. Mom saved all my furs from a year's brushings, sent it to her friend who has a spinning wheel. It was spun into a ball of yarn about the size of a baseball. If your Mom would like to see, ask her to email your email address to us. Our email is on our blog.
    Hugs Madi

  5. What a great idea! We'll certainly be watching this space...

  6. WOW Meow !!!

    That's one indoor keep the yucky weather outside project.

  7. What fun....

    We'll watch fur fur-ther developments.

  8. I will LOVE watching this space but then, when haven't I? I can't wait to see what happens.


  9. Wow, it's a great idea, I can't wait to see what you make!!!

  10. We've obviously given mum a priceless commodity and what has she done with it you may ask - dropped it in the rubbish bin.!!
    We dispair of ever making her rich and buying Mr Puddy for us.
    Luv hannah and Lucy xx xx

  11. i can't wait to see what you do! I'm so sorry I only TODAY saw the comment you left on I HAVE CAT in response to my HATCHING CATS post! Did you ever get one? Thanks so much for visiting my blog - i really like yours a ton!

  12. We can't wait to see what you come up with! Our mom takes our furs and rolls them real tight into balls or sausages and then gives them to us to play with. They're fun to whap around!!
