    Cats from stach

    Cats are one of my loves. I own 9 but I like to sew them, stich them, collect them.
    So I made those two little kitties with stach.
    I used the pattern of the stitched one to make the black and white cat.

    At the begining I wanted to use this blue cat as a pincushion but my daughters told me horrified that I couldn't pin needles into such a lovely kitten!!! That's why I made my voodoo pincushion.

    My black and white cat made with the stach from my black and white quilt with the stitched cat (from a kit) I used as pattern.

    These are all so cute and a good way to use up stash fabrics! I'd have trouble sticking pins in any of them!! Be careful with your other cats seeing them. I gave my Mom a stuffed cat and her real cat took it outside and left it in the middle of the road! True story! And the stuffed cat was the same size as the real cat. We never figured out how she did that without any of us noticing! Enjoy stitching.

    I sure wish I had a pattern for that cat!!! Does anyone know of a pattern like this? Any help would be appreciated.
    Free would be best.

    9 cats!! Oh my, I hang my head in shame. I am not a worthy feline fanatic. You have me beat. I have only 4 right now. I lost my beloved Avatar Maine Coon early this year, but he was big enough to count for 3! LOL

    I love your cute cats, I would not be able to stick pins and needles in them either and I agree that your voodoo doll is a much more fitting pin cushion. Your embroidery is exquisite and makes a very special cat and that one is my favorite.

    For some strange reason I do not understand, your cats actually LOOK French! They are simply wonderful!
    My fabric talks to me.

    I'm normally not a "cat person" but I am absolutely in love with all of these! Each one is adorable in its own way! I don't blame your kids for forbidding you from using them for pins! They're too precious!

    They are so adorable. I am now making memory bears. They are such fun, and so worthwhile. I had to make myself one out of Richard's Robe. I can snuggle with it and it still has a little of his scent on it
