Vintage Cat, perhaps?

April 6, 2011

I had the day off today so I thought I’d spent it sewing. Had a blast too!

My mom (in-law) gave me this pattern that her mom gave her. It’s a 1954 Simplicity pattern. I thought it was so cute I had to make one of them, so I made the cat.

 

I wanted to use a fabric that was kinda old. I went to the thrift store and found this 80’s ish jacket. It looked  80 ish to me. hehhheee

Here’s the kitty I made. I used vintage buttons my mom (in-law) gave me for the eyes. They had a cat eye look about them. He still needs whiskers but I think he’s kinda cute. I think my granddaughter will like him.

 

Maybe he’s not vintage but the pattern is, so that makes him a little old.

      In so many ways that sounds kinda scary! But some day I’ll have to do that, first I’ll have to create the inventory.
