As far as hair goes... Some people have been known to make whole businesses out of making clothes out of your pets hair. Results vary by pet hair type though. Google search for pet hair clothing is very fruitfull..

But probably scarring.

not really that scarring, it's just sweaters and hats.

And bikinis! Because some pets don't have much hair to shed, you see.

So, Maya's art. It's pretty good. Are you still taking classes?

I just thought of a charity: dogfur for darfur

sell dog fur socks and banana-hammocks to stop the fighting!

new peice and while I'm not really really drunk, I am drunk. XD

also, for those curious about dog hair items...
you save the hair over a period of time, sometimes years, as you brush your dog. long-haired breeds work best. works the same as cats and bunnies.
no, it doesn't smell once you wash it. it's the dog's oil glands that cause the doggy smell when wet, so once you remove the oil source and wash it out, it's gone for good. it's alot like angora, it's very warm, very fluffy, and if you have a good processor, it's not terribly itchy. it's often blended with wool of some sort. most people who take the time to spin this sort of thing arn't actually that crazy, and tend to make tame items like sweaters, hats and scarves. if you really need more information, try to find back issues of spin-off, I've been reading the last 20 year's worth at work.

you can also spin yarn out of musk-ox, yak, alpaca, llama, opossum, bunny, goat, dozen sorts of sheep and breed really does count, cotton wood/milk weed fluff, ramie, hemp and the cotton balls you get from the drug store.
that topic should be mostly dead XD meanwhile I play around with chemistry trying to figure out the best ways to extract dyestuff from local fungi and flora. it's really fun

aaaaand I'm gonna test my limited engineering skills and build a functioning spinning wheel! it should be interesting. I think I should be able to make a pretty fast one, but I doubt my wood working skills will let me very detailed.

okay, bed time.

Extracting dye from local flora? You seem to be quite serious about this whole "made from scratch" thing.

chemical dyes are expensive.

For some reason the brother and sister made me think of Girl Genius. It's probably the sleepy one...

I think you need more than one color for schematics. Also, building your own machines to make your own yarn to make your own clothes is approaching the ridiculous.

After the world wide total economic collapse which destroys industrial capacity, your impressive talents are going to be way high in demand.

But first you need to build your own tools to build the machine to make the yarn to make the clothes.

why build the tools when I can use dad's for free?

and it may sound crazy to build a spinning wheel, but the cheapest one I could find was 500 bucks. whereas I could build one for 50 bucks and maybe two days worth of work. with free tools.

Who needs tools? Most can be approximated with your hands plus some bones from dead things. Make your own glue and you don't need nails!

That method requires experience and experimentation, meeowth.
