Back in the beginning of December Oh, Fransson posted that she would put up one cat pattern per day for December and she called it Catvent! Cat Cuteness!
I made a few
But then time became my enemy, and I had to put away the fun for the more pressing Christmas sewing. I got back to them earlier this week, as I had already made 4, I at least wanted to get a mini size of cat faces.
I decided I could go with a pillow and not have to make all 25 cats, although I might make more one day.
It enjoyed picking out the color for each cat, my newly organized scrap buckets helped.
I made 3 buckets of colors - red/orange/pink, blue/green/purple, black/white/gray/brown and one for solids. It was so easy to find the right scraps. I bought these containers at Walmart and they stack up nicely.
I had an 18" pillow form so that is the size pillow I went with.
Each cate had a name, and these are the first 8, I have two of the first pattern, I must have liked it so much I made it twice. So I actually have one small cat face left over. He might be a coaster one day to match the pillow.
I used minky on the back, in case the recipient wanted extra softness.
Keep Calm and Quilt On!
