Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
So......tell me you what you think of this:
Is this kitty sinister or what? She looks like she baked up some pure evil alongside the cake.
I loved stitching this evil little baker-cat. I needed a last-minute gift for my mother-in-law, and was unsure of what to get her--what do you get for someone who has everything?--and this little kitty was perfect.
Here's how she started:
I don't have a light box, and the sun was down by the time I got around to tracing the design...luckily this fabric is thin enough to see through. :) I just taped the fabby on top of the pattern and traced it with this pen:
It's made by Dritz, and I got mine at Michaels.
Here's kitty after an hour or so of stitching:
Look at her tail, isn't it cool?
I used 3 strands of dark gray and 2 of light gray to make kitty's tail look this this. I think I kinda love it. :)
And here's another pic of a completed kitty:
(I am such a dork, people. It never occurred to me to snap a pic of kitty AFTER I'd rinsed away the blue marks left behind by the pen. D'oh!)
Ok, so normally I would tell you where I got this pattern and post a link for it so you could make your own sinister kitty...but with all the drama surrounding Vogart patterns right now, I ain't gonna do that. I am pretty sure that the pattern isn't even available anymore, as most people have privatized their pics of said Vogarts. It's sad & sucky but dem's da rules. Sigh.
Well, that's it for me, Stitchy Peeps! I hope you're having a fabulous weekend and getting lots of stitching done. ;) I will be back soon with more stitchy goodness to share with you...yours truly has been a busy girl lately, and I can't wait to tell you all about it. Until then...
