This is the last kitty for now. Yes, those are little mice on her dress.
Silk bow at her ear-
Some details- Vintage cotton rickrack at her hem. Antique buttons on her jacket- I think they are some kind of nut shell? Antique shell button on her purse.
I will be putting the last 2 kitties into my etsy shop today. I have pulled out a pile of already-sewed-up tattooed people and have started to stuff them. I also need to pull out the dye pots and dye up some more mermen. Onward!
Here is #3 Kitty.
She has a hot pink sweater with antique, 3-hole, glass buttons. Here is a close-up with her purse too.
A kitty school girl in a dress made from more fabric from my Mom’s stash. This dress fabric is (probably) 70’s vintage lawn. It was one of my mom’s unfinished projects- all cut out but never sewed up. I love being able to give it a new life.
She has a school bag, a cabled cashmere sweater with heart buttons and a ruffle edge, and a lacy shawl.
What’s in her school bag?
Phew, I managed to finish one before January is over!
Her dress is made of vintage Liberty lawn that I got from my Mom. She has a cashmere sweater and a silk bow at her ear.
I have collected many random little trinkets over the years- that is the category that I’d put that dragonfly pin into. Sometimes they find their place.
I’d like to pretend that I could work on the dolls and also have a side project but I am very bad at it! My quilt is coming along and I wish I could keep to my plan to only work on it for an hour or 2 in the evenings, but it is a big distraction. Here it is, waiting and tempting me in the morning light. (I managed to resist because I NEEDED to post something today!)
I dressed this black kitty using this witch girl as an inspiration so now they are quite the pair!
It is fun to do a different twist on the same idea.
Owl dress, cashmere sweater, vintage black lace and antique glass buttons. greys and black.
An orange and black herringbone kitty with a dress with both fish and sailing ships. Kitty love their fish!
She has a fish charm/bead in her pocket- lunch maybe?
A sweet herringbone tweed kitty girl in her Liberty of London fabric dress. And a cashmere sweater too!
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.
