Directions
1. Sew the stretch trim end to end, overlapping ends slightly.

2. Fold the feathers in half twice so that they form a shorter, thicker bundle.

3. Sew the feathers together at the bottom, and tack them over the seam, covering it.

5. Now you are well on the way to becoming the cat's whiskers. Shimmy into a frock, pull up your silk stockings, get all dolled up, hussy on down to the Fairmont Hotel, and Bunny Hug the night away to the "Memphis Blues ".
