Synopsis:
Are your favorite sweaters covered with cat hair? Are there fur balls piled up in every corner of your home? And do you love to make quirky and one-of-a-kind crafting projects? If so, it's time to throw away your lint roller and curl up with your kitty! "Crafting with Cat Hair" shows readers how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts. From kitty tote bags and finger puppets to fluffy cat toys, picture frames, and more, these projects are cat-friendly, eco-friendly, and require no special equipment or training. You can make most of these projects in under an hour-with a little help, of course, from your feline friends!

Review:
"Intensely cute..."--"Publishers Weekly..."Quirky and the projects are super easy."--"OregonLive.com"..."It caught our attention."--"The Huffington Post--"You may think kitties are only good for getting hair all over your favorite chair and eating more kibble than you thought possible but "Crafting with Cat Hair" will show you how to turn cat hair into mittens, tote bags, book covers and more."--"CraftFoxes.com" --""Personal "projects that celebrate your cat and they look as cute as can be!"--"Neatorama"--" "--"Put those furballs to work for YOU!"--"Suvudu"It's bizarre, to be sure, but the appliques are kind of cute, too. This is a good one for your cat-loving crafty friends (and you know you have them)." --"Austin American Statesman"--Bonkers but Brilliant.... --Dales Life, December, 2011

It is in a neat 19 cm by 20 cm paperback format and is packed to the brim with cute kitty photos - which you would expect of course but being another cat obsessive, it is fun seeing a craft book dedicated to kitty cats! The book is based around felting techniques with the cat hair. There are ten projects and most of them use needle felting to decorate a felt or woollen item with an image of a cat. A couple of them, such as making a cat hair finger puppet and the project where you apply the finger puppet to a felt box, use a wet felting technique. You get help and instruction for both these techniques, although you may need some previous experience of felting with fur or at least some crafty common sense as some of the instructions are a little short. As Kaori herself points out, cat hair isn't quite like sheep wool so it is good for decorating projects but you would not be able to make a usable bag from it for example. Some of the projects include a decorated coin purse, some really cute kitty badges and kitty cat portraits, and some great scarf, hat and glove decorations. All projects come with step-by-step instructions and some come with pictures to help you with some of the stages. The book's greatest strength is in the details of how to groom and care for your cat with an aim to collect cat hair and have a happy, well-groomed cat of course! It answers some of your catty questions from what to do about pests, when the best time to harvest cat hair is and to how to look after the projects you have decorated with the cat hair. There are patterns, materials lists and handy tips throughout. I loved the section where you get to meet the cat hair contributors - cute touch! --Craftymakes, December, 2011

the author guides us on a creative journey that teaches readers how to adorn such items as badges, hats, pincushions, tote bags and even portraits. If you have an aboundance of cat hair you're not sure what to do with, this could be the stocking filler for you! --The Cat Magazine, December, 2011

From the publishers who gave us Meowmorphosis, another wierd and wonderful book... --Cat Care, Winter 2011
