DIY: 5 Gift Ideas for Cat Lovers – Gift Set How to

– [Woman] Hey guys. Cats are my favorite animals. They are so cute, silly, and fluffy. And today's project is
inspired by Crafted. It's why I will show you how
to create a cute DIY gift set that includes five different
cat-inspired things. This set is a perfect gift
for a cat lady or gentleman in your life, or just for yourself. It's easy and fun to create. So let's get started. To create a top and a
bag with a cat print, you will need an uncooked potato, a cutter, fabric paint in
the color of your choice, a cotton tote bag, and a top. Start off by cutting the potato in half. Then, with a marker or pen,
draw the shape of a cat's head.

Then with the cutter,
start cutting the shape along the guideline. If you have that, cut a
little bit into the potato and start cutting along the edges. I cut in about five millimeter or so. This way we can remove the excess potato. Just carefully cut out
everything that is outside the shape you drew on to create a stamp. Then, take a folder or
thick paper and place it into the tote bag to
avoid the paint staining the other side of the bag.

If you have that, you
can go ahead and apply the fabric paint onto the potato, and carefully place it onto the fabric. I used a brush to apply the paint, this way I could apply
the right amount of paint without wasting it. Just carefully place the
potato onto the fabric and press it down, and
then slowly remove it. If you notice anything about
the stamp that you don't like, you can just remove it with the cutter. Repeat this process until you
are happy with the design.

For the gray shirt, I
used white fabric paint. I kind of liked that the color
was not so well covering. This way the stamp created
a unique cat design. And if you get any paint somewhere else, you can quickly remove it with a Q-Tip. I also added some whiskers and a nose to some of the cat patterns. I think this makes the design even cuter. And if you would like
to create a paw pattern, Cut the potato in half,
but along the thin side. Then draw a heart the wrong way around, and then four small circles
around the top area. If you have that, go ahead
and cut out the shape the same way as we did
with the cat's head. With this stamp, I kind of
created a tail on the back of the shirt, but you can
also print the whole shirt with this pattern as well.

Then I quickly went ahead
and added some more details to the tote bag before
I let everything dry. When everything was dry,
I placed a cloth on top of the fabric and paint, and
ironed it for a few minutes to make it machine washable. And you are done. This top and bag were so easy to create, and I love how they turn out. To create a cute cat mug,
you will need a white mug, porcelain paint or pens,
and rubbing alcohol. First, clean the outside of your mug with some rubbing alcohol
to remove any oil. Then, draw a heart for
the nose, the mouth, and the whiskers right
around the edge of the mug. Be sure to draw the design on
the opposite side of the mug when you hold it in your hand. If you want, you can add
more details to the mug.

I added a few cat paws
and some cute cat arms. Then let it dry and bake it. And again, be sure to
read the instructions of your pens or paint first. And to create these 3D cat paw socks, I used a 3D liner in pink. And you will also need socks. First, put some cardboard
inside the socks, but be sure that the heel of
the sock is facing the ceiling. If you have that, go ahead
and line out the heart the other way around, and
add four small circles around the top areas, as
we did with the paw stamp in the beginning.

Then just paint everything
in and let it dry. To fix this paint and to
make it machine washable, you have to either iron it or bake it. After that, the paint got
all puffy, and you are done. This 3D liner is great if
you want to create 3D paws and make the socks slip-resistent as well. And if you would like to
create the sleeping mask, you will need light gray, dark gray, pink, and white felt fleece or fabric, scissors, white embroidery floss,
needles for the floss, an elastic band, and fabric
glue if you don't want to sew. First, cut out the
template I made for you.

Then, place it on top of the
light gray fleece or felt, and secure it with some needles. Then cut out the shape. You will need two of them,
for the front and back side. Then, cut out the heart
shape using the template. To make sure that the
nose is at the same place as on the template, I place
the template onto the shape and pierce both the needle
right where the nose and mouth meet each other. If you have that, you can go
ahead and glue on the nose with some fabric glue. Cut off some white
floss, thread the needle, and make a few knots at one of the ends. Since you already have attached nose, it will help us to stitch the cat's mouth.

I use a simple running stitch method. I pass the needle in, and
then when I wanted to pass the needle out, I went through
the stitch I just created. Then, I repeated this step. You can decide what length you would like the stitches to be. When I created one side of
the mouth, I pulled the needle through one of the
stitches on the back side to create a loop, and
then I pulled the floss through this loop twice
to secure the stitch. Cut off the excess thread
and repeat this step on the other side. If you have that, you can
start stitching the whiskers.

And do the same for the eyes. Since I used felt, I could
pierce through with the needle along the template. This way, the needle
created a guideline for me. Then, I went ahead and glued
on the pattern above the eyes, but I wouldn't recommend
gluing on the ears just yet, as it might not look cute in the end. Now we need to prepare the band so the mask can actually be worn. For this step, wrap the
elastic band around your head wear you would wear the mask,
but don't pull on the band.

Mark the length with a needle
or pen so you know the length, and then take the mask and
place it under the band right next to the marked
point, and cut off the length of the mask. Now we need to glue the
two pieces together. For this step, add the fabric
glue to the back side pattern along the edges, but be
sure to leave out the areas on the left and right side
where the band will be later. Place the pattern with
the face onto the glue, but be sure that the face
is facing towards the desk, as we'll turn everything inside-out. Press everything together and let it dry. When the glue has dried,
go ahead and turn the mask inside-out to make it
the right way around. You can use a pen or
scissors to help you out. I've decided to add some filling
so my mask is not too flat, but this is optional as well. Now all we need to do is
adding the elastic band.

For this step, add some
fabric glue to the openings, and add the elastic band inside at about one centimeter or so. Firmly press the pieces together so everything came glued
together very well. Repeat the same on the other side without twisting the elastic band. Now you can go ahead and glue on any areas that you might have missed,
and let everything dry.

And you are done. Now you can put everything
inside a tote bag, and you get a cute gift
set for you or your friend. Thank you guys for watching. I also want to thank Hill's Pet Crafted for helping me create
this cat-inspired DIY. When I learn about their food, I found out that we actually have a
lot of things in common. For example, they ask me
about my artistic passion and why I like to craft. And one of my passions during
the process of making videos for you guys is that
I always pay attention to every detail, because
I believe that this way I can create the best
content and the best quality that you guys deserve.

And what I like about Hill's
new product line called Crafted is that they use thoughtfully
sourced ingredients that are high quality. Because you also believe
that it's important to pay attention to details
if you want to create good quality food so
you can take good care of your furry friends. And if you would like to
