It’s been a while since I made a full-sized cat cushion.
But with two days to go before my next stall, I realised that I had none left to take with me.
There are owls, there are birdies, there are even Christmas mice - but no cats.
So with girded loins and a stiff upper lip, I steeled myself to cut into two wonderful pieces of fabric I had bought recently.
Luckily, there is a fair bit of each, so these won’t necessarily be the last maxi moggies in these fabrics.
I have to say, I do enjoy miniature making more.
Perhaps it’s to do with the seemingly endless process of stuffing a big cat.
Or maybe it’s my miserly side coming out: there’s something particularly pleasing about finding perfect paws or a terrific tail in the scraps bag, rather than cutting into virgin fabric to make them.
Whatever it is, these big bad boys will be on my stall this weekend at Bird in Borrowed Feathers Winter Market.
The premises have been recently renovated from a decades-empty husk, but unfortunately, the heating hasn’t quite been fixed up yet.
So I will be the one encased in maximum thermals, snuggled into my warmest coat, possibly even sporting a fair isle beret.
Needs must. ♥
late update: just heard that the heating has been fixed – yay!
