My Creative Thursday!
I have made this with love especially for you all my dear friends!
Wait…there is much more…
This is something funny and nice and I want to share with you how I have made this lovely soft ball…
… of course you have guessed that somewhere is hiding a cat….
My Nelli loves and enjoyes when I brush her…that’s good because in summer she loose very much hairs!
Brushing her means also less hairs in her stomach and more hairs in my ‘creative hand’…
I collect the hairs from the brush during the brushing and in ‘hot summer hand’ it becomes easily felted ball! You roll the hairball in your hands like making meatballs!If you want it thicker you can continue with few drops water and soap.
Okey…they are lovely woollen balls… but then what….
… I have small and big assistants who help me to collect adorable material….
In my childhood-home we had Afgans (the dog-beauty with long hair) and later I had two Collies. We collected the hairs when brushing and had made them yarn. You know that dog-yarn is as hot as from camel and it’s very good for rheumatism etc!
Dog’s wool doesn’t felt but I have used it in some other ways…. for example I love it for neelde felting!
And finally here is the decoration with ‘cat-hair balls’ and ‘dog-hair hearts’!
I hope you enjoyed like I was when making them – and even better if I was able to give you a lovely moment for your ’Creative Thursday’! If you get inspired and make something with hairs of your furry friends, I would love to see!
Have a Wonderful and Creative Thursday !!!
