This time we're making some pawesome

Crafting With Cats Easter Special ©BionicBasil®  Catnip Easter Eggs with Blossom and Melvyn

The only kind of Easter Eggs mew'll want this Sunday! MOL 

What Mew Will Need:

cotton Fabric, we used a selection of fat quarters in different prints

lining fabric [optional]

needle, thread ~ optional sewing machine

scissors

stuffing/wadding

a great big pile of catnip

Optional Bunny ~ Blossom was today's Craft Room Snoopervisor

Let's Get Started

Crafting with Cats Easter Special ©BionicBasil® Catnip Easter Eggs Steps 1 - 4
1.  We're making six eggs, and here's our fabric choices fur 4 of our eggs

2. And here's our fabric choice fur the last two

3. Cut out your egg shapes - ours are approx 7" tall by 5" at the widest part prior to sewing

4.  Check with optional bunny to make sure they meet FULL BUNNY approval

Crafting with Cats Easter Special ©BionicBasil® Catnip Easter Eggs Steps 5 - 8
5. Cut out lining fabric and place either side of your patterned fabric

6. Pin eggs together ready fur sewing [right sides together]

7. Sew, either by hand or machine, leaving a gap fur the stuffing at the bottom

8. Your egg/s should now look something like this

Crafting with Cats Easter Special ©BionicBasil® Catnip Easter Eggs Steps 9 -12
9. Turn fabric right sides out and get FULL BUNNY approval before continuing

10. This is one side of our eggs

11. This is the other side

12. Now stuff with primo catnip - we used our homegrown, organic primo nip in our eggs.  And used a ratio of 1/4 stuffing/wadding to 3/4 catnip to fill them - that way the eggs are springy but are really stuffed to the brim with the primo stuff making sure they're extra fragrant and delicious, as nopurrdy wants a BAD EGG! MOL

13. Once your eggs are fully stuffed, hand sew the fabric opening together

14. Now mew should have something that looks like this, with FULL BUNNY approval

Now we're at the critical stage of testing, so what did Smooch think?
Crafting With Cats Easter Special ©BionicBasil®  Catnip Easter Eggs with Smooch - The Big Test
As mew can see there was no stopping him, the eggs were amazing and Smooch said, "Dudes these Easter Eggs are eggstraspecially nip'a'licious!" MOL

In fact the P.A. had to remove him from the room as he went a little wild and refused to share with anypurrdy else, I think that's because the P.A. used a special combo of Catnip and Catmint that we affectionately refer to as Psychedelic Puma Blend - OOPS - so maybe not fur newbies like young Melvyn

So there mew have it, straight from Smooch; catnip eggs are the best, make some, get some, try some this Easter and don't miss out on the fun! MOL 

Happy Easter! 

*    *    *

And that pawesome furriends furry sadly brings us to the end of our twelfth Crafting with Cats post, we do hope mew liked it, and we look forward to sharing more crafting exploits from BBHQ in the future!

And if there's anything mew'd like us to make, leave a comment and we'll do our best next time we're here.  

We'll be back on the morrow with our fab Easter Selfies and do hope mew can join us then.

Feline Fiction on Fridays #97 at Amber's Library featuring ** Here Comes The Easter Cat** by Deborah Underwood

Welcome To

Feline Fiction on Friday's with Amber @BionicBasil®

With Amber ~ The Best Library Kitty in the entire Mewton~Clawson Parish

amber bibliokitty Feline Fiction on Friday's with Amber @BionicBasil™

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

I was going to tell mew what a hideously busy and offurwhelming week I'd had in the library and how it had been nigh on impossible fur me to choose a book fur mew this fabulous Good Friday, and a whole host of other excuses, but sadly dearest furriends this old gal was caught out in the most epically epic way... OOPS!

Amber Relaxing in the Catservatory ©BionicBasil® Feline Fiction on Fridays #97

  Yep, this old gal was caught snoozing [well actually it was almost coma-esque] in the catservatory and partially upside down too!  It was so warm in there, and it just lulled me into the bestest slumber effur, in fact I had no control at all and resistance was completely futile! MOL

The P.A. did remind me on Wednesday that I needed a book and from my semi-upside-down placement I replied, "Yeah, yeah yeah... it's all in paw, don't mew wurry your little self about it!" 

Then holy moly, jumpin' juniper berries, I realised it was the 11th hour and 59th minute and I had no post - shame on me. 

So it would appear my feeble excuses aren't going to cut the mustard in any capacity today, so many apologies about that.  But neffur fear I have a back-up plan to entertain mew and that's where we're headed right now... so let me re-share this weeks book.

**This week I'm sharing a review I did fur last Easter, as I think this little book is delightful and deserves another read!**

Here Comes The Easter Cat

by

Deborah Underwood


Here's the book blurb:

Why should the Easter Bunny get all the love? That's what Cat would like to know. So he decides to take over: He dons his sparkly suit, jumps on his Harley, and roars off into the night. But it turns out delivering Easter eggs is hard work. And it doesn't leave much time for naps (of which Cat has taken five-no, seven). So when a pooped-out Easter Bunny shows up, and with a treat for Cat, what will Cat do? His surprise solution will be stylish, smart, and even-yes-kind.

*    *    *


 Mew may remember that I also reviewed, Here Comes Valentine Cat.  Well I saw that there were several other books in this series and I added this one to my 'to buy list' and guess what I got it instead of an Easter Egg, I didn't need the extra calories anyway and as I said earlier this book is completely calorie free! MOL

It is totally adorable, full of delightful illustrations and a really cute, but meaningful story.

If mew have younger children, or nieces, nephews, grand-kids etc, then this would be an ideal Easter book just fur them.

I think the author has a great formula wurking here and I will share more in the series as they're just too cute not to!


Seriously though mew don't need kids to buy this book, buy it fur yourselves and enjoy, give the kiddies another egg! MOL
