1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Kitty-O-Lantern Kitten Costume on: January 05, 2011 05:08:08 PM
For Halloween, I made out kitten a costume! It is just a couple pieces of felt and some velcro, for easy on and off.

Here is what is looks like flat:

Gus is such a champ, he even posed outside for pictures!

He wore a sweater for Christmas, but I did not make it. I think he might need a little cupid outfit for Valentine's Day though!

This is amazing!!
You have inspired me to try this with the leftover sleeves from a t-shirt quilt!
Great job!

What an awesome idea! No more sending dead markers to the landfill! Can't wait to try it!

Thanks for all the great comments, and Facebook feature!!

To answer a couple questions:

My husband just packed the pieces of corrugated paper  Cheesy so tight that they don't budge at all. (Though I imagine that once Gus gets a little stronger, they might need to be glued down. Thought at the moment, I can't even really get them out!)

I hot-glued all the batting to the insides/edges of the box, then hot-glued the material to the outside bottom and draped in. It is completely covered, but I also made a fluffier, removable pillow to stick in the bottom in case washing is needed. (It is also bigger and kinda folded in so it can come out and he will still have a place to lay if/when he gets too big for the box bed!)

I'll have to try the rolled up and with catnip idea. Gus would probably enjoy that!

And we like his name because it gives us a lot of options and variations, plus, he's got little white tap shoes on his paws!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Attempt At The Slit Throat Choker! on: September 13, 2010 08:53:11 AM
Thanks so much to arrmatie for the great tutorial!
You can find the pattern here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60207.0
I used a G hook, since that is the smallest I have.
The choker came together very quickly, and the diagram did help when I was having trouble visualizing!
Thank you for taking the time to share!

We had tons of cardboard piling up, so put it to use making things for our kitty, Burton Guster (otherwise known as Gus, or Chocolate Einstein...)
So, he got a padded bed, from a box, tons of scraps of batting/stuffing, and an old pillowcase.
My husband cut a bunch of cardboard into strips and made a scratching pad, (he just shoved all the strips into a box top) like the ones we had seen in Petsmart. Amazingly, our kitty, who has never really scratched anything, went right to it and began to claw. It is still the only thing he claws on, so apparently, it works!

So, I am pretty sure I will never sew anything this small again! I have no patience for things in miniature!
I made this for my husband's art history professor, who recently lost a Frida. (I am not sure what her store bought one looked like, but I am pretty dang proud of mine!)
This was a good way to use up scraps of material and yarn. I did end up painting the face though, after a couple failed attempts at stitching!
Anyway, here she is!

When we were doing them, we would start poofing them out from the center part and working out.  And we definitely had some ripped ones in the beginning, but I swear it gets easier!
