Hi! Yesterday I thought I was playing with a cat but was it a fox?!
When I was making those birds, I thought to try if the same idea could work for a cat. With a good will it looks lying cat … or fox.
“When I’m lying I never have my tale up! If you think tale makes it cat, that’s your opinion!”
Moustache and button eyes helps a little bit, I think. At least my fresh new fabric is perfect for fur!
“Couldn’t care less – I don’t think you expect me to keep her company?! Only if she’s going to be a mini quilt for my basket – I can consider. Any chance to get this window washed?”
If you like to make this patchwork cat, look the following easy instructions:
All you need is squares and triangles. Squares are 2.5″ x 2.5″ and triangles are half square from 3″ x 3″.
!If you use fabric print with direction, take care how to cut the triangles!
Sew first all the triangle pieces. Trim them to 2.5″ x 2.5″ size.
You can sew the squares together in rows and then the rows together. Or sew them in sections.
My rows are often a little bit wonky so this time I sew the squares in sections (for example 4 together, 6 together and then all the sections together). For me this worked better than rows.
I added white stripes around the block and got the size about 17″ x 17″ (43 x 43 cm). I’m going to make this pillow and because I shall quilt it, I didn’t trim it yet.
It’s easy piecy cat – but is it cat or fox? Could she be ‘Easy Piecy Cat’?
And then weather report: today we have had sunshine (what else) and rain (yes!) and wind and sunshine and rain and wind and rain and sunshine … if you don’t belive …
Now the summer is over – can’t help – beach is empty and someone was collecting the last sun beds and umbrellas …
Now when it’s not too hot anymore, Hanna can come with me … she is so good company. In the car she sits still on her seat wearing her the seat belt (if she doesn’t pick any dog – then she may get furious). When I’m doing something, she sleeps on her towel, then we have a small brake and look around …
She is my darling girl!
On our way back home we met two ladies with their kids … try to guess who … till next time!
Thank you for stopping by and reading my little blog! I hope you can use this cat tutorial. Perhaps you have a darling girl who would love to have a cat pillow to hug!
Carly from ‘Citric Sugar’ has made beautiful pillow which absolutely invites for hugging!
See you soon!
