My ladybugs are coming along nicely. I now have 10 finished, and several more in various stages of completion. It has left my craft area a mess, and me in need of a break.
I made a little bird pattern with some scrap paper and decided to try my hand at making a little cat toy for my Inhibitors with some of the leftover felt.
I had spent some time in the morning pulling some old clothes for Goodwill, but found a few I wanted to use in crafts projects, including this cute skirt and its tie.
The knotted end of the tie was a perfect hangy thing for the birds tail. Cats love the hangy things.
I whipped it in place with a little thread making sure not to go all the way through.
A heart made a great wing blanket stitched onto one side. I must have Valentine's Day on the brain.
By this time Kracken had gotten curious about the goings ons and planted himself right in the middle of things. I threw a little scrap of felt on the floor and he was easily distracted so I could get back to my bird.
I started around the edge of the bird (I had a front and a back with wrong sides together) with a simple running stitch, but before going all the way, I tucked a little fiber fill and catnip into the opening.
Rudy showed up and I gave him a sniff.
Kracken didn't agree, and promptly stole it (do I need to give the guy a name?) and took off down the hall.
Don't worry. Rudy got it back. Pretty sure that look says L O V E.
And pretty sure I need to make another one.
Here are a couple short videos if you would like to see more.
