Me Me kitty can be a good sport, sometimes. Today she allowed a few fashion snaps of the felted cat hair hat created from just two days of combing. She’s not impressed!
At 16, the queen begrudgingly shares the house with 2 rambunctious young calicoes, 2 dogs, one screaming cockatoo, and her house slaves. She insists on claiming the art studio as her space whether I’m there or not. Her preferred water dish is my water container for brushes.
After seeing the post on Bored Panda about a Japanese artist who makes felted hats out of cat hair, I just had to try it (especially since I’ve jumped into the world of fiber/felting/spinning). The hat creation started with needle felting then shifted to wet felting. After drying overnight, I added more hair with needles. Me Me’s gnome hat will continue to grow as the days continue. As for spinning cat hair, I’ll pass on that one. I did watch Tiny Fibre Studio spin her cat hair into yarn. Click here for the domestic pet spinning video. I love her videos!
Anyway, it’s nice to have something to chuckle about in the world these days…..
Eventually I’ll be posting images of the completed drawing and move onto the next book.
