Cutie niece was also interested in having her own Scrappy Cat. We made a trip to the local shop where niece selected her desired fabrics. I like how specific she was – she took the whole thing very seriously, comparing each fabric side-by-side before deciding on it. All buttons had to be examined before the final selection of the sparkly ones you see here.
Ready for assembly. My mom’s sewing machine is a bare bones model, so I ended up doing some of the decorative stitches, and face and paws by hand. Sometime right before assembly, it was demanded by cutie niece that this was a Scrappy Kitten, not Cat. I took wider seam allowances and made a shorter tail to accommodate the Kitten-ness request.
Custom Scrappy Kitten, completed and on a lap. The pillow behind its head was another demand-custom project. Cutie niece is totally going to be a designer of some sort one day.
I ran out of time while there and still need to complete the AteMouse and requested Kitten treats and get them in the mail.
Nice time, but glad to be home, as always. I like home.
