Here are some recent creations that have been keeping me busy. This big grey cat (whom I have named Edgar) has beanies in his bottom third so he stands up nice and tall, all by himself. He is over a foot tall. I kind of love him– a lot. His forlorn expression makes me think of Edward Gorey drawings.
I sketched his pattern out over a year ago, cut the felt about 6 months ago, then finally put him together recently. Something else just kept getting in the way of me finding time to finish him. He has a companion fox I need to make, too.
These cheerful kitty creatures were fun to make, too. They have machine stitched arms, little hearts on their backsides, and a combination of hand and machine stitched faces. I based their pattern off of my kitty-roos.
They, along with Edgar, are headed to Elissa Halloran‘s shop in Albany once I sew the stuffing opening on each one closed.
