the light is good today so I’ve taken lots of photos-
Kitties 4 and 5
I think of them as brother and sister instead of a couple.
They can sit with a little encouragement- I gave them a hip seam.
his felt school/messenger bag. It can open up, but I haven’t put anything in it.
I wish I had made the sweater just a little bit shorter- I don’t like how it goes over the tail.
And here is the sister cat-
They are about 14 inches tall, made of mostly recycled and/or vintage materials (except her skirt fabric and his felt bag). The sweaters are made by recutting old sweaters. His is slightly felted so it was easy to cut and sew- no unraveling. Hers did not full at all when I washed it, so when I cut it, I had to be very careful. I bound the seams so it won’t fall apart. I always try to use the ribbing from the sweaters because I think it makes them look so much more authentic.
Love the kitties. Great detail. Don’t fret over the length of the sweater–it’s very realistic. I don’t like where sweaters sit on my bum either.
Love this kitty pair. The details are wonderful, especially the tiny sweaters.
i like to imagine that they are Parisan lovers embracing below the Eiffel Tower.
