OMG! This is SO perfect! I can't believe that this was once wool roving! I just tried my hand at needle felting and as my husband said he looked a little "special"  Grin This looks so perfect!

Sorry for the delay, I just got a spiffy new phone with a much nicer camera, much better for swap pics! I received a T-shirt, scarf, 2 cat toys and bracelet from athenaknits?, pics below:

The whole lot:

A close up of the 2 cat toys (I could only tear them away from the kitties for a few seconds) and my safety pin bracelet. The cricket cat toy chirps and the worm one moves across the floor when you pull the string:

A t-shirt with someone's face on it, is it Sid Vicious?  How did you do this, it's very cool, it looks like it's almost bleached in? It was hard to take a pic of it because it's white on white so this is the best shot I could get :

And my favorite gift, the Social Distortion scarf...I LOVE it!:

Thank you for everything! My boy cat is playing with the cricket toy right now trying to figure out why it's making noise, so cute!!

Thanks! I'm so glad you guys like them!
The plastic bag idea is good, I was going to make some kitty toys like that.
They haven't carried them too far Smiley but every once in awhile when they get really worked up they toss them around a bit and then it's perfect because they're then exhauseted from playing and collapse on the bed  Grin

18  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Super Easy Cat Mats W/ Attached Toy (with tute) on: November 17, 2007 07:43:10 PM
I made these 2 kitty beds for my kittens after I made one on the whim for a swap. They seem to love them and they really love the toys that are attached, I'll have to make more of those. Sorry for the crappy pics, I seriously hate my cell phone.
Here's a pic of both beds/mats together (sorry my cats would would not let me take a pic without jumping into it Smiley

The underside:

Fishy bed:

Heart bed:

They're super easy to make, try one!
What you need:
1. Fleece in desired size-about 1 yard ( I used 2 colors, ex. fish on one side, blue on the other)
2. At least 16" ribbon (I used grosgrain)
3. One sheet of felt
4. Embroidery thread
5. Loose Catnip (organic is best)
6. Sewing machine or thread and needle

1. Cut 2 pieces of felt into the shape that you want
2. Hand sew (for a crafty look) with 3 stings of embroidery thread all around the shape leaving a small boarder around the edge and about a 1" opening.
3. Cut a 16" piece of ribbon
4. Pour in about a table spoon of cat nip
5. Stick 2" of the ribbon into the toy and sew the opening shut
6. Keep it plain or add eyes for fish, a break in the heart...

1. Measure 2 sheets of fleece and 1/2" more than you want it on all sides (the ones shown are 15" x 16")
2. Turn right sides together and sew all sides leaving a 3" opening on one side (for stuffing)
3. Turn right sides out and stuff with batting or fleece. I used 2 sheets of fleece for stuffing and warmth but if you have batting that works too.
4. Tie a knot in the ribbon part of the toy and stick the ribbon at least 3" into the bed with the knot inside between the stuffing-this is to secure it from popping out if your cats get too rough with it
5. Sew opening together (I used my machine for a more secure stitch)

Good luck and let me see your results if you decide to make one!

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / I need your help! Any suggestions for door draft stoppers? on: November 11, 2007 08:43:01 PM
I need to make 2 draft stoppers for the doors in my apartment. There's a small gap between the floor and the outside door and I don't want it to get chilly because of that or *eek* let anything else into the house!!! Has anyone else made these? I have no idea how to go about it. I see them at stores with cheesy designs of ducks or chickens or something but I want cool ones that will go with my funky apartment. Does anyone have a pattern, idea for cool design or anything else that will help? I'm also not sure what to fill it with because at the stores they seem very heavy like their weighted at the bottom but I'm not sure what they use, I don't want my cats to be able to push it out of the way of the door. Thanks for any help!
