For my cat nephew
So, this is the ewok I made from the Wild Olive free pattern.
Yeah, it's cute but I'm still "meh" about it in general.
But I think my cat nephew (Lowell) is going to enjoy it. Especially after my sister sprays it with catnip spray!
In fact, I think this pattern is perfect (yeah, I had to stop myself from typing "purrfect") for cat toys. It sews up pretty quickly, makes a decent size (good for kitty to kick and wrestle), and can be made from recycled/inexpensive materials. In fact, this is made from a pair of corderoy pants I got from the thrift store (and cut up) and a bit of acrylic felt. I'd imagine the corderoy will withstand some good cat wrestling (the hood might get mauled easier though--but making a new one wouldn't be a big deal).
I texted my sister a pic of it and told her it was for Lowell. I can just picture her rolling her eyes and sighing "He's so SPOILED!".
