I have several tickets from Japan when I went to visit my grandparents and I was trying to think of a good way to save them and that project was perfect. Thanks for posting it! :)

I don't know if I've already posted this, but congrats on the spread in Company magazine a while back, it's great seeing CO+K get the recognition it deserves :D
I know I must sound stupid but how do you get a project set as a version instead of a how-to
its my pleasure entirely, thank you for being such a great inspiration!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hey Cat Morley! I really love your crafts! I especially liked the fish to sushi, sushi to fish craft! It will make a great Christmas present.
hey whats up?
May your hearts and home be full of divine blessings on this Thanksgiving!
You're welcome! Thanks for accepting, I really like your projects :D
Sorry for probably flooding you with Favorites!
I love a lot of your amazing tutorials and I can't wait to try them out! You're awesome!
Are you kidding me? You're like a God on this site. Thanks for accepting. :)
I can't see the sushi plushie pattern, is there any other way I could get it? Thanks, I love it!
Do you think the lollipop necklace could be made using Model Magic instead of Fimo, thus avoiding the need to bake the clay?
I don't love autumn any more than the other seasons, but I love October!
October = Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, skulls and bones and creepers, candy corn & pumpkins, beerfests, spooks, pranks, rock n' roll in the street, a touch of madness in the air, orange & black, Jack o' Lanterns and an undertone of general pandemonium (the healthy kind), among so many other wonderful things!!!
No problem! Thanks for accepting me! Your stuff is AMAZING!! :)
Most welcome Cat.. your site is rock..i like very much ..so many tutorial here and really and deeply falling in love with crafts now
Hi Cat, Thanks for being my first Cut Out + Keep friend ;)
I'm on the site almost daily, just having a browse but I'm now planning out my first project. Quite excited about it ;)
Your projects are amazing! I'm sure that the majority of my favourites are from you!
Is it October yet?!?!
Thank you for accepting my friend request. I really love this site! It's definitely a better brain nourishment than math or science. Hehe. :)
Hey, how are you doing? It's Keava. I just found your site recently. Love it! Found a secret fig garden in the middle of Edinburgh that I think you guys will like ^^ Robbie should be back over Christmas too Xx
LOVE your projects! Keep CRAFTING. :)
Hello,Cat!!I have a question for you.I have a friend on CO+K,and I keep trying to delete her from my page.But every time I try to hit delete,it doesn't work.Even if I press it time after time after time it won't work.What am I doing wrong?! Luve,kookigurl97
No problem :D ur projects are all awesome :) x
hii today is my b-day
hey cat I don't kno if you can help me or not, but I'm trying to enter one of my projects in for the contest but it doesn't show up in the drop down menu o.0 ?
i just wanted to tell you that you're my new role model! <3 you're kind of awesome :)
cool, yeah i've seen that place on my way to college, i keep meaning to go to it. erm, the only craft place really is the sewing shop at the bottom of the high street, there isn't really any places like Potter About x
Hey thanks for accepting my friend request. I was browsing through all of your crafts and I feel so inspired! I cannot wait to try making my own bath bombs and the lip balm. I think that'll be my Christmas presents this year sorted! :)
I wanted to comment on your Irish Stew recipe though and it wouldn't let me, not sure why, but Guinness isn't veggie friendly! They use a fish product called islinglass in the filtering process.
sure! you're kind of amazing, who wouldn't add you? this site is kind of... awesome? yeah. thanks for adding me too :)
Your welcome & thanks for accepting me! I love this site!!! You are my hero! ^-^

No probs. Also why did you stop your podcast?
I metioned your how-to-do on a project of mine. I didn't took a picture, but used your how-to-do to make chocolates for in my chocolates box. I wanted to give you credits for your idea! so that's why I metioned it.... hope you don't mind? and otherwise I will remove the comment. let me know!
Thanks! I'm actually working on a second one now! After I made my cat scarf, my friend was begging for one for herself :) Thanks for the awesome project!
love your project so creative and cute ~~~~~ XD

Do you like Twilight? And how do I get people to see the "About" thing on my page? It won't show up! it makes me SO mad! HELP!
As a general rule of fact, anything made by Cat Morley is golden.

Hello, I notieced your comment on queenfairypants' profile about questionarres for the about me section...if you have one could you send me the text for it? I like this idea...
about ur skinny tie project, could u make the instructions clearer? i tried to follow exactly but failed...
Hi there. I'm new to the site, and have fallen a bit in love with your sushi-fish plushies. I'd like to give them a try, but the link to the template is broken (and designing my own template would probably end up with an amoeba!). Can you help me out? Thanks!
D0 U KNO ANy GOOD PROJECTS???
Thanks for the add! You're my craft idol!
you rock girl!
I love your projects.
Your projects are pretty rad.
Nice bein number one and all !

Hey cat , do you have a button I can use for my blog that will lead here? Just pm it to me or e-mail it to me please :)
That depends... 0: There's a few crafty places around where I live, but I don't know if they're the 'best' really. I doubt so. I live in south-west London, for the record. (:

Hi Cat! :D
In my cooking class in school we're going to be having an Italian dinner for the parents later on in the year and we're trialling all these recipes at the moment and I got the teacher to let us make your "Soft Amaretti" when we were trialling all these different 'accompaniments' to go with coffee. And...everyone loved the amaretti! it was a hands down winner! and has been selected to be used on the night! So congrats on your awesomeness recipe! :P
omg that sounds awesome =D
When you get done you should post up a picture of it ^-^
Hey Im great just sewing a skirt while making a tutorial on how to make it to post up on here. =D

No problem ! (:
I was surprised when I was in London this year, the weather was hot and sunny just like back home ... Want to trade? Florida sunshine for perfectly cold, grey English days? <3 Glad to hear you enjoyed the weather, hopefully it'll stay for you. (:
And the same with you! xxx
Hey Cat. I've seen many of your projects and they are all quite darling and utterly fantastic.
Keep up the good work!
How's the London weather by the by? I just came back from a Eurotrip and it was so cold and lovely out there!
cat u rock :D I love all your projects!
Cat :D You Rock :D *worships cat* *worships projects* *-*

here's a link. definately check it out. it's really inspiring!
Thank you i am very happy to be friends with you all your projects are amazing!
Sadly I dont have anything online, most of the stuff we did at uni, was pretty awful tbh lol. At the moment it's all about crafts for me too. Like you, i like that i can get something finished out of it a lot quicker. I loved your spectacles project by the way, library work seems to run in my family, so I'm sure i'll get to use your how to at some point. :D
you have some super rad projects!!!
thanks! your crafts rock my socks!
hey i love ur crafts! =)
I come from good old Cowdenbeath. Lol! I go to Rejects quite a lot but I always seem to be rushed and never get a look at the craft stuff. I could go to Dundee. My friend lives there so it wouldnt be a problem. =D x x x

I'm doing ok thanks, finally finishing off college, working on a beast of a dissertation! Also, finally going to marry Neil next year!
Your website is looking fantastic, it's got so much great stuff in it! Unfortunately the craftist thing I've done recently is make an origami crane with lopsided wings, but I did make a quilt ages ago which I treasure :D Hopefully, once I graduate I can get on here and try something out, especially the foodie things. Oh, and I want to learn to knit. Anyway!
How's things with you?

I have been making these for 16 years.
i have made them different shapes sizes...
when i unpack my studio, I will be sure to post more pictures.
I am happy Crafterella found me on MySpace and invited me here to meet all you creative people. (even recipes)
I just moved to South Haven Michigan from Wickenburg Arizona
(I am a Phoenix Frida) all my ART and magic supplies are all packed away until we move into our new house in June.
It is nice to have this here so I can stay connected to the vreative world while living in limbo.
Doing my Rock-a-billy radio show does make me smile though :O)
Take care and stay cool,
Miss Holley King
Yea I wrote my return address on it

hello there cat! I'm a newbie to the site, but I'm loving it quite a bit, fantastic job around here! I looked through some of your profiles and websites and thought like you seemed like a friendly enough person and went ahead and added you. Hope that's ok :)

I had family that just moved from Scotland I believe the town was called Fyvie? Thanks for the comment.
Thanks For the info! Yeah i went ahead and made the tape dress form. It turned out pretty good, it was taped a little too flimsily from the bust up, because my "helper" or my boyfriend, got tired of taping after the first 2 layers! So, we have devised a plan to tape it back on, and then re-due the floppy bits!~ So... hopefully it will work, and i have been getting some other supplies together to make a sturdy frame to work around. I will post pic and info when its all done!
Im in Aberdeen at the moment,but moving back to Glasgow at the end of next week.
Hello, Thanks for being the first to leave a comment :)
I stumbled upon this website today and have instantly become addicted!
The little monkey in the picture is one of my own made from an old jumper!
I have just added that to my list of projects to but don't have any How To photos! Really must start to do that!
Anyhoo thanks again,
I was thinking of making a zine for my neighborhood. or atleast an online one. I'd love to feature cutout and keep in the first issue.
I'll let you know how it goes. I just need a code monkey. LOL
<3<3 talk to you soon
I'm a Hello Kitty freak :-)
hey i saw that dress form you had in the back of the picture with ur belt and skirt, is that the singer model? and do you like using it? does it work for you? I was looking in on them, but i think i might want to make my own...
You're welcome! I love your how to's too!
Does it work??

Happy (belated) Valentines day!
hehe my friend always doodles 'moo' on her schoolwork its pretty funny....:D
thanks cat! i hear shes coming back-but as long as the problem is taken care of, thats all that matters. :]
everything you do is great on CO+K~ thanks for it all! <3
She changed her name to
She is stalking Chelsea K.
I think Carry B. is a leso
And is out to get Chelsea lol
Cat, Karla's back I know she is she wished me the crappiest valentines ever and the only places shes been in our my profile and my mittens project! She changed her name to Carry B, shes stalking me Cat! She wants to make my life a living hell!!
Not to sound freaked out or anything...
Yeah-I could try that
My football team won!
But they the other team should not have got that point because the line guy flew his flag to say the game was over and then they scored-and then the ref. said it did count
I had to get big brother to explain like 10 times
Have a good day
lol, I have some cool fabric but am running low...I'm waiting to get paid and then I'm going to go all out.
hey cat, love the site. i'm just suggesting that you take a look at Karla B. because she is sort of spamming and putting down and just overall being mean to people here at CO+K and i think that that sucks. hehe. thank yoouuuu! ;]]]]
Oh and I forgot to say that I think the toothbrush bracelet and the supergirl tote should be feautred.
I no I dont run this website or anything but they are wicked!
I think I would burn my house down thought boiling a toothbrush-I dont think I can boil pasta without it over flowing!
Haha you cant make them-I found them on the net and copied and pasted them!
These are cute anyway <3 <3 <3
Thank you for the wonderful comment. I wish I was as talented as you, crafty at everything :-)
Very yummy Cupcakes with extra frosting

I just checked out your flickr
The photos you have taken are amazing!
The Go! Team
CAMDEN-Befor it was burnt down D:

Your Etsy photo should be your photo ]
Happy Valentines Day Cat!
Hey Cat I'm the Valentines Day Fairy and I have came on by to tell you to have a very Happy Valentines Day:)
Happy Valentines Day <3
thank you! that was totally a help;; but it doesn't happen to mention if you should use the needles that are straight or the ones that can bend into a circle. I don't know if it says it! So please excuse my absent mindedness :D
well, thank you lady!
you've got some fun projects! :)
um I have a question;; I am a sort of "new" knitter;; and I was wondering if you new how to make a slouchy berret type hat. Like what kind of needles you use and such.. thanks!
I would love a blog, I want the whole shazam!:D
It would be easier to do a how-to if I was a better teacher and could measure. I wanna do my mitten one but I dont know really how to show you guys the pattern, I can show the steps fine just not the pattern you need to cut out...makes me sad lol
Hey Cat quick question for you, what are the ripped out notebook pages in peoples profiles?
I think your so talented and I love this site. When I first saw your picture I thought you were around my age you look so pretty lol.
Oh no, I have! I'm just a bit too shy. I'll do it for you though kat! hehe x

Hmmm thats a bit dissapointing. Good that it worked it for you though! The site is great!
awesome! My little brother wants to do that is it a good course ?
I graduated doj 2006 and then did an MA in london. Though still doesnt help me find a job in dundee!
Booo just back from London,So now Dundee it is, and Stirling at weekends! Are you at doj ? :)
Hey, here's a project suggestion for you:
How about designing a bag that looks like a normal shopping tote (for groceries or whatever), but has a secret compartment you can drop shoplifted goods into?
Hey Cat! Thanks for favourite-ing my project,
I'm glad you like it :]
Thanks for adding my bag
thank you so much for the kind words! This is a great site and I am so excited to connect with other crafty people from all over!
All of your treats look so yummmy!
Ya, but still atleast you can come up with alot fo things on your own.
Your page is a very productive network the patchwork bell pants is really made by a soft velvet its is called standard velvet here more appropriated for Brasil. Thanks for create this is amazing.
that will be so cool if people can show their attempts. Right now I'm working on the barbie shoe earrings and sushi necklace and the ice lolly magnets.
Your welcome ^^
You have such awesome crafts, i wish i had the same inspiration source as you do!!
than i might not need sites like these. Hehehe, thanks a lot.
i really love all your proyects
thanks you so much to share
lol yeh I'm either a plum or a berry, which my boyf calls me when I wear my red raincoat lol
hey cheeky :P It may as well be lol I wear enough of it, I think the people I work with think I am a crazy plum
all the wigs i have are purchaced. i do alter the wigs and make hair pieces. i think i would go insane if i tried to make a whole wig.
Awe, thanks! :)
Yours are great too!
All the different projects on here are so inspiring :D
thanks for the comment on my hair. i have a bunch of wigs and that is one of my favorites. they are the best way to change up a look
I've been making a lot of accessories lately. I made some "missing" puzzle piece earrings. I think my next project will be guitar string bangles...but I'd really like to try the vinyl record projects...
Hey there! I am really enjoying this site. It has my creative muse working double-time! Hope all is well.
That's an awesome idea with uploading the finished projects -- I always wanted an easy way to see people's takes. I'm gonna brainstorm other ideas :)
Seriously Cat, this is amazing. I am enjoying all the really smart features. It looks like you have an error in the last.fm links though. I am esp loving the friend features and the "who loves this project." These are things that were always missing from craftster. I'm bragging to my bf how awesome this is.
This design is lovely. I am scattered with projects and inspiration and I hadn't been to CO&K for a while and this is amazing. It makes me want to quit my tutorial blog and just post them all here :) Thanks for finding me (again) and for adding me as a friend. Can you post articles here too? (Similiar to when you did the CO&K magazine?)
thanks for inviting me. I don't know if I did OK when adding my project.
Thank you again :-) That's one of my fav projects!
I Wish i was as crafty as you Lol. :)
a few seconds ago
Just wanted to give you the heads up. Comments don't need to be approved before they appear on here, so your comment on the I Heart Mac N Cheese competition is viewable to everyone - do you want it deleted?"
Oh my gosh. Yea, I would like that deleted.
It looked like someone had to approve of the post since my first attempt on posting didn't appear at first. Now I feel stupid. XD
Im pretty good thanks, im only here for another week then back to dull edinburgh, but hey:p
How are you? what have you been up to recently?
I know! I can't keep up with the comments lol. I guess i will save the rest of my tutorials for a day or two or I won't getting anything done :-)
I feel the same way about the washer earrings lol. I go out and people ask me where I got them. They expect them to be so expensive. Our little secret :-)
Thanks for the compliment on the bag! Just came over from the etsy forums and strawberry anarchy's forum post -- COOL SITE! Love the whole aesthetic! *runs off to check out more projects*
Haha it's actually not mine, it's a picture I found online. Isn't it adorable though? My kittens are all grown up and fat lol!
Ouch! How's the back doing?
I love your sight! I've become SO addicted to it and I can't wait to start posting projects of my own. BTW, thanks for the comment on my kitty, he's my furry son. Oh! Happy New Year!
lol well I hope this year can only get better. I fell new years eve and broke my collar bone.. I have the worst luck! buy yay for happy comments on my page! Thank you :-)
Thanks for the compliment, I did make the rose shirt in my pic! I make loads of tops like that, there are a bunch in my Etsy shop, POODLEKINS (poodlekins.etsy.com). You make such wonderful things, it makes me want to spend hours holed up with a needle, some felt and a bag of buttons.
Thanks for your well-wishes. I hope your holidays were all that you hoped for. Now for the long winter slog ... :-)
I hope you had a wonderful holiday and an amazing start to 2008! Happy New Year ;-)
of course. there's nothing better than some folksie tunes for some inspiration.
thank you. i like your crafts.
Where did you go in Canada to get all those funky charms???
I really would like some
Thanks she is a cutie, my lil kitty :) Hope all went well for you this xmas, thanks again for the card :D
Actually doesn't matter, I don't have a thermometer!
But would you need different ingredients or can you do the exact same recipe?
Hey, can the absinthe lolly pops be made with any alcohol?
Nah. Thank you for the add!!!
Melanie @ The Coma Girl Designs
So, are you an admin on the site? Are you and Crafterella the same person?! The mysteries never cease!
well my family doesn't exactly celebrate christmas but we still somewhat follow the trend. haha well my mom just gave me a bunch of money as a "christmas" gift because shes afraid if she got me anything I wouldn't like it so, therefore she gives me money so I would buy it myself haha :]
I'm considering buying Happy Hooker, but I'd have to order it and I'm not sure if the patterns are any good? If it's more or less the same as Stitch N Bitch then I'll probably go for it, I was just wondering what your opinion on it was?
thanks! you too! so how was your christmas
Merry Christmas - hope you have a good one! xx
Fancy! I'm jealous... but I have NO IDEA what I'd do with an iPhone. I'd settle for just my little Shuffle and a decent phone.
And maybe a camera. ;D
Awesome... I went ahead and rattled off the entire contents of my handbag. If I had a travel knife and emergency rations in there, I'm pretty sure I could survive in the wild.
lol sounds like me. Yeah I got to get some projects up asap. I just got a new camera so hopefully once the holiday crunch ends I can get them up and going. Between my jewelry making and my fiances candle making we stay pretty busy this time of year :-)
Oh good thanks. Trying to take a break from all the necklaces I'm making family for Christmas. Sigh. I'm loving your projects though! Amazing work.
I got your christmas card this morning Cat! It's up on my mantel piece. I also loved the confetti snowstorm that came with it. xo
(Christmas mice)thanks for fixing that for me I had now idea how to do that I'm a neewb. to this site. so thank you. I do hope u make them. my children make them every year for Christmas. me personally I think they go better for Halloween. but either way they sure are yummy. emyru.
Sweet! I love everyone's enthusiasm :)I also found a dark red with black swirls. I'd love to see how all of yours turn out. Is there a way to post them here?
I haven't got yours yet, but I'm looking forward to it. My mum's been moaning that nobody's sending out christmassy christmas cards this year so hopefully yours will cheer her up. They look dear x
Thanks for the first comment on my first cut out and keep project =]
I'm wondering if you've got your Christmas card yet, I posted it first class yesterday (late I know!)
And also, I found you asking for crochet tutorials on the web a while ago, try youtube. I taught myself using youtube tutorials a month or so ago and tonight I'm going to make myself a skirt. Once you get the basic stitches on there you can do anything, it's a hundred times easier than knitting.
He was rubbish but I did get angry when Gordon called him fat. There's no need for personal insults.
He reminded me of Dom Jolly somewhat. Just perhaps less jolly.
I just made it while watching Gordon Ramsay! Only there's not much christmassy about it so I'm going to have to do something about that. Excited!
Hi! I'm really sorry but I've been very busy with things at the moment and haven't done your christmas card quite yet. I'm hoping to do it tonight and I'll pop it in the post tomorrow, first class of course. Hopefully it'll still be ok, and I'll make sure it's super good.
Unfortunately i hadn't gotten the try. I'm now a night shift nurse and work most of the day. But because you've reminded me i must get the supplies to try. Do you think the glitter will burn? I hope not.
of course! i like a lot of your projects. if you know anyone whom you think i should know, you should introduce me to them. anywho...
hey thanx, u have some great projects, il have to find out how to add some of myn,
hi cat sorry for gettin back so late---busy time of year--hope to say no for while--hehe--hope your well--sendin my smiles d.
Hey, thanks for favoring some of my projects :D yay
I can't remember the last snail mail I got
thanx for adding the favorites now I can neaten my website bookmarks a bit more
Thank you for you message! I love your projects. Especially the calaveras!
I made some too! I'm trying to figure out how to upload the photos of them to this website. :)
I totally love the favourite thing- I've favourited 34 projects so far!
You sweetie pie. Thanks for favoriting--- OOOPS! favouriting sparkleballs. I'm honored!
Yay! u favourited my project!
I and my shoes are quite enjoying it here, thanks :D And I see you've got "Requiem for a Dream" in your movie list, that movie totally freaked me out.. namely the "a$$ to a$$" part... oh my! But I watched the whole thing anyway, then went on to watch The Boondock Saints. Violence to the max! Ok I'm rambling now, I'll hush. <3!
Hello there! Thank you for being my first friend!
I'm excellent, thank you. This profile thing is pretty fabuloso.
Bit like yourself, actually. x
I usually just leave a list of my top 5
