    I've got 3 girls in the throes of molt right now. I started collecting the feathers a few days ago.
    I'm pretty crafty and plan on making a feather duster and a few cat toys out of this haul.
    Any other ideas? Am I the only one who feels like they shouldn't be wasted?

    Some people make crafts, like necklaces.

    Dream catchers look great with feathers.

    Right? I was almost sorry I asked. Anything I make will be shameful by comparison. [​IMG]

    Don't be sorry. Be inspired!

    I was thinking of a picture made from feathers.

    It's not super fancy, but it's a start. It's about as big around as a beer can. I used one of the tiniest feathers from my Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but it has a gorgeous soft white outline on the feather.
    I'm gonna go hunt around and see if I can find some beads and leather. :)

    Thanks!

    Now I just need a little more of that thing called "spare time."
