Orange Houndstooth Kitty

9-13-kitty5 - 1

Well, this kitty was a challenge. This houndstooth wool looked so perfectly kitty in the abstract but it ended up being very hard to make into a sweet-faced girl. The scale of the pattern drowned out the face details. I had to re-work it a number of times before I was satisfied.

Her coat is a nice teal-green linen- in a former life, my mom’s porch linen tablecloth. Love that.

She has a silk ribbon bow in her hair. I love this russet fabric with a printed subtle texture and now I am almost out of it. Does anyone know what it is? I want to see if I can track down some more.

She also has a silk ribbon at her waist, with a bow in the back. You can see the little star design on her clothes in the picture above.
