Quilts in Common

Welcome to our quilting world!

My Pointy Kitty

 

I like to make handmade items for presents. My little niece is turning two today and I decided to try my hand at making her a stuffed toy. Now my history of making stuffed toys goes way back to Jr. High in Home Ec class. Everyone had to make a stuffed animal in that class- we did get to pick which animal we would like to make though. My choice is rather obvious- I lived on a farm and had lots of dogs, cats and horses running around so naturally I chose…….. a walrus……yes, a walrus. I made a stuffed walrus out of pink gingham with a pink felt nose. I got an F, or a D-, or something like that, I can’t remember. Needless to say, making stuffed toys has been an uphill climb, but I enjoy the process!
Hillary Lang, over at Wee Wonderfuls, has some adorable patterns for stuffed toys including the pointy kitty. He’s very little but with a tall tail!  I hope my sweet cutie-pie niece likes it! Her bedroom is decorated in fushia and lime – so I thought I would use that as a guideline for my fabric choices. I also added a little mouth and whiskers- I think she will notice the detail- she has 3 kitties of her own and is a very sharp girl 🙂
