Laser Cut Felt Cats. Dougie Scott
Felty Felines from were a result of an afternoon spot last week at Fablab London using the Trotec laser cutter – and thanks Martin for the help getting the best cutting parameters.

Using deep compressed wool felt, I hoped the cats cut from this natural material, would look good.
And the cats do look good but the big drawback is the smell: I’m reminded of my kids straightening their hair – more accurately burning it. Made up of keratin proteins it gives that distinctive aroma that – luckily – no app can quite recreate as yet…

The Dougie’s graphic cat designs were easy to adapt for laser cutting. Cat’s eyes made more dramatic with clear acrylic spheres.
