2.0 out of 5 stars Tries hard, novelty don't justify a whole book, 13 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat (Paperback)
The book gives one project that is all cat hair (the finger doll on the cover), and then shows how to put a cat hair cat-figure on 9 other projects. I thought this was disappointing and wondered why there weren't more "real" cat hair projects (like rings, bracelets and other small items).

The answer is given on page 41: "[cat] hairs do not entangle well, and if you apply any sort of pressure, a hole will open up. It doesn't have the strength or durability to make any sort of practical item, but it does work well for small designs, mascots or decorations". It goes on to say that even the cat-figure projects need to be treated really carefully so they won't be damaged.

So the "use cat hair!" idea is funny, and would have been a fun single project in a book, but it is not enough to make a whole book on it own. To compensate for this, the book tries really hard to get sympathy by plenty cute cat pictures with speech bubbles, fact about fur/grooming, and profiles of the fur-donating cats. But if I wanted a cute cat book, I would buy a cute cat book and not a craft book.

So all in all, the book is short on useful content, but hard-core cat lovers will love it anyway (it has cats in it).
