And so my sewing adventures continue.
After my last toy sewing adventure, I decided to split the attack. On one front, I'll hand sew a palm sized toy from this book (it actually says "palm sized toys". Guess I should have taken the hint last time...), and machine sew a larger and simpler toy - Hillary's Pointy Kitty.
This is what they looked like after cutting the fabric and some assembly. The pointy kitty is made of the fabric I got on this swap, but I changed the color of the felt stripes. The palm sized kitty is made of one of the (many-many) kitchen towels from IKEA (don't worry, we've got about a hundred for a $1.99...). That one was difficult to deal with, although I like the way it came out. Frying edges? You bet.
So this is how they came out (look for more photos here):
And here is Pointy Kitty (more photos here):
And the third kitty? Who else?
