As the "mother" of two cats and a dog, I get a lot of pet-themed gifts. Recently, my beloved sister-in-law gave me a copy of Kaori Tsutaya's book Crafting with Cat Hair.
- Knitted dog hair garments – Folks around the world are combing their fluffy dogs and spinning the fur into yarn. Anyone for a pair of Golden Retriever mittens? While you're at it, why not knit a sweater that makes you look just like your dog?
- Felted cat fur beads – Not to be outdone by the dog people, cat lovers are brushing their fuzzy cats and using traditional wool-felting tools to make felted beads and other treasures.
- Rolled cat fur cat toys – Like catnip, these ridiculously simple toys will drive your cat nuts.
