This is my cat Mo-gun, she’s the thin one. My other cat Alexis has gained quite a lot of weight over the years (she was sleeping when I wanted to take a picture of my cat(s) with the toy) and since I’m too broke to buy a toy for her, I decided to make one so that I can get her moving.
Cat toys are so easy to make! A good reason to make them with what you already have is that cats, just like kids, get bored of their toys quite fast. 50HKD might not be a lot, but it’s going to add up when you keep having to buy new ones just to entertain these drama queens.
You will need:
A pair of scissors
One rod – I used a take-away bamboo chopstick (free!)
The other day I was clicking around Pinterest and I came across a tutorial for sewing your own notebook. As cute as these look, it was definitely one of those projects where your expectations are higher than the outcome. Holding these little guys in my hand, I realized they’re much too thin and flimsy to be any good for me.
So in Rachel fashion I took it up a notch and looked up tutorials for thicker notebooks. Yes, I have the time for that on any random day at home. I even found super old workbooks from junior school and used the blank pages for my new upcycled notebook!
Looks like a legit notebook, no?
I even sewed my name on it! It did, however, take me until I was tracing the pages with my finger (yes I was rehearsing using my very own handmade notebook) to realize I had sewn my name on the backof the notebook. You can also see that freehand sewing is not one of my strengths.
Hey it’s me again, Stranger. Remember me? That person who has a blog but never really bothers to write in it? Well, when she does she keeps it up for a few weeks then she’s gone for several months before you see her update her blog again.
This is getting weird.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – I think I’ll keep saying this – I just never know what to blog about. The other day my friends from Third Culture Playgroundtold me they miss my vlogs and I should keep doing it *awwwww* - but here’s my reply, “FML my MacBook is so slow I’d rather direct and produce than edit anything.”
