Hello Kitty Cat

My daughter has a cat project at school and they should bring all sorts of cat related things.  They can even bring their own cat but that’s not an option here, our cat is a little like Garfield, seriously fat but hardly that funny.  I thought a cat mask would be cute and it was actually on my things-to-do-in-this-life-list.  An easy sewing tutorial that will find its way to our beloved costume suitcase.

Choosing the right pattern and fabric. (This book with Katharine Hepburn in it was laying around, just thought it would make a nice background)

The cat mask is made in two separate pieces so I don’t get all confused with the eye cut-out when turning the fabric inside out .  I stuff both pieces and sew them together by hand. Finishing it off with a lace trim and some sequins and finally adding an elastic band to keep it in place.

And why not make a complete set?



We have a black and white cat obviously…
