I had a ton of housework to do on Saturday, but I really didn't feel like doing load after load of laundry, or cleaning the bathroom, or even finishing up the spring cleaning. Instead I decided I really needed to make a kitty cat for my tot!
I free-handed a quick pattern, cut out the pieces and stitched him up while she was napping. I suck at hand embroidery, so I was pretty pleased that the face didn't look like a giant pile of twisted embroidery thread. I actually picked up a few pointers from my friend Emily at the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild that has made my hand embroidery a little less sucky (thanks Emily!).
He's made from an old jacket and some Benartex fabric, some felt scraps and buttons.
And of course he has a long twisty kitty cat tail.
My tot loves the kitty, especially the long twisty tail! On the other hand, hubs thinks it's creepy and actually said it was "freaky looking." Good thing I didn't make it FOR HIM!
