Meet Quirky Cat

Hi Everyone
More sunshine!! anyone would think it was summer here in the UK!! Before I pop off out to take advantage of this lovely weather I would just like to share with you another of my sewn characters. This time I introduce Miss Quirky Cat.

Miss Quirky Cat was made as a birthday gift for my very special crafty friend Donna, sadly Quirky cat takes after me and didn't get there in time, but with apologies made she now resides down south!.

She has been made using a mixture of new and vintage fabrics, bits of old clothes and old buttons. Construction is a mixture of machine and hand sewing. She stands over 12" high.

I love the one blue eye she has, this is a very old button that I would have loved to have seen what that was originally sewn on (I have a few more of them left)

Vintage lace trim and some bits of Tim Holtz fabric. I have aged the fabric using a combination of fabric ink pads.

I know she is happy as here she is with her new and bestest pal

Have a fabulous Sunday and thanks for stopping by

  2. She's absolutely gorgeous Amanda and can see why Saffie (think that's her name?) is cuddled up to her!
    Lucky Donna!

  3. I can confirm that Quirky cat is indeed enjoying life down south with her soulmate Saffie, I'm hoping her good breeding will rub off on my cat! I think everyone needs a Quirky cat in their life too ;)
    Huge 1 hugs

  4. OMG! She is absolutely FABULOUS! It's good to know she has gone to a good home. I would need NO encouragement at all to go and SNATCH her away from Miss Inky and Quirky....Mwah ha ha harrrr. Lx

  5. What a fabulous cat you have made - I love your style - love your style. But you know that. Such personality - a very good cat indeed. She is so lucky to have such a gorgeous roommate as Miss Saffie.

  9. Love it! Thank you for sharing with your fans!

  10. Truly quirky and truly wonderful. Can imagine Donna absolutely loves her. The piercing blue eye is a fabulous touch, and I love the vintage, distressed randomness of the textured fabrics. Full of character and altogether charming.
