Lipstick Kitty



     

I had an empty lipstick tube and got the idea of a little kitty tucked inside who would twirl up and pop out when the tube is twisted!
I totally removed the lipstick, and cleaned out the tube, inside and out with alcohol. I then made a skinny cat body out of rolled up and glued felt, measuring first to make sure it would fit inside the tube when twisted down, and cut ear shapes on top. "Rhinestone"eyes were glued on with jewelry glue and a little nose embroidered. Finally, a tiny seed bead necklace was securely stitched on. I used hot glue to secure the bottom of the cat body inside the tube, and added some stick-on ribbon to the outside.
Making this little whimsy was so fun, and the recipient got a big kick out of it!!

You are so clever! A great gift for a person who favours cats over lipstick! x

I never expected my silly kitty to be so well received! I guess we all need a little giggle once in awhile!!

That is just darling! I don't wear lipstick, and I love kitties. I would totally carry this girlie kitty around in my purse -- and maybe give it to a friend of mine who has similar priorities :)
