Register your interest here to be the first to hear about future Cats Protection crafting events.
Join us this February for our first-ever virtual craftalong! Learn how to make your own mini needle felted cats and have fun with fellow cat-loving crafters.
Suitable for complete beginners as well as more experienced crafters, you’ll receive a materials kit containing everything you need to felt two cute little cats!
Led by felting expert, Steffi Stern from The Makerss, you can join us for the live craftalong on Facebook at 10-11am, or catch up later by watching the video.
The cost to take part includes the craft materials kit delivered to your door, access to the craftalong, as well as £10 to support our work to help cats and kittens in need.
It could pay for bedding to help keep a cat warm and cosy, or feed a cat in our care for over a month.
About the craft
This easy project is suitable for beginners aged 10+ (under adult supervision). You’ll learn how to needle felt with wool using a felting needle and fast felting wool batts. You will be able to make two mini cats, one plain colour and one tabby or multi-coloured. Your mini cats can be made to look like your favourite puss and will be approximately 5cm in size when completed. During the craftalong you will be able to make one mini cat and you can make your second cat in your own time later.
Your materials kit has been carefully designed by The Makerss team and contains everything you need to make your mini cats, as well as step-by-step instructions. It comes packed in a sturdy Kraft box and will be posted through your letterbox.
On sign up, you will be invited to join our private Craft for Cats Facebook group.
Please note you are required to have access to a Facebook account to be able to join in with the online craftalong.
