Timmy and Einsteins Cat Scout Crafts

Me and Einstein spent last week at Cat Scout Summer Camp. 
It sure was fun Timmy. I loved Camp Curry at Yellowstone National Park.
It was amazing and we meowed about the sights in last Fridays post Letters from Camp.
Today we wanted to meow about crafts and a very impawtent knot every cat should now in case of emergency. Take it away Timmy.
Thanks Einstein. A Bowline knot is handy for many things but it is what Fireman and Rescue Cats use to save kittens or silly humans from holes after they fall in.
Or maybe pull a human up a cliff after their car runs off. They do that from drinking too much of that hootch stuff.
True, very true. Unfortunate that they cant enjoy a good nip of nip.

Anymeow. A Bowline knot is handy for other things too. Here is how to make one so follow along kitties.
1. Build a rabbit hole by forming a loop. 2. Out hops the rabbit
3. The rabbit hops behind the tree.

4. The rabbit hops back down the hole. Pull tight.
You now have a loop that will not tighten. That way you don't
squish the kitten or human or thing you are pulling up.

Thanks Timmy
Sure thing Einie. Now you take it away.

We both made Garrison Caps with a sharp red accent. Furst
you cut the pattern. There were two rectangle and two longer
pieces that were like a banana if the center was straight. 

We used a back stitch to put the two rectangles and long bits together. The rectangles are the middle part you see.

The long bits made up the outside as you can see here. See how the ends go down. Very sharp.
Umm, Einie, you furgot the "how to" photos didn't you.
Sowwy. But I will make up fur it

By modeling of course. I look very sharp!

Yes you do. Now I will show our other craft project. We made an Infinity Scarf fur Dad.

Furst you cut the bottom off of an old T-shirt. It is a big loop so an infinity. Something really cool is that when you pull the loop really hard the cut part rolls under. No need to hem. Then you use spry dye to add colors and maybe some stencils. Ours were nautical. 

The stencils were difficult to use but we learned a lot and the next one will be a masterpiece. Some of the other Scouts really had amazing looking scarfs. 

Hey I was going to model it!
Lets let who it was made fur model it

Thanks fellows. I think I will go stock up on free cat food.
Really, neat. Where is that Dad
Oh... Anywhere I guess... See ya later guys.

See you Dad.
Timmy you don't think...
Nah, Dad is as honest as Abe Lincoln. 
Yeah, But...
