oh my! i hope you kitten is ok. i make sure to do my crafting with my little god in another room cuz she ALWAYS gets into my stuff (usually because i work on the floor) and she thinks it's funny to steal my stuff lol maybe your cat just wants to D.I.Y with you lol.

thanks for the comment!

awesome idea, i like to glue yarn bobins on it, yours is really pretty.
about wrapping arround, its a option, but when you do it like yourself, you see more of the measuring tape idea. thats making it so awesome cool!
thanks for sharing, and hot glue does melted on skins but too on furry of animals, my kitten thought it was a toy when i heating the gun up and would glue something, so she got the glue on her paw and furr. She didn't hurt herself badly but... i was afraid of it and shocked about it, and i have burned myself many times on that tool too.LOL

i love it.. but i think i would wrap it around the headband.. you'd use more of the tape it it probably wouldnt get so bumpy on the ends. super cute though! thanks for the idea
