I haven't mailed this one yet since partners haven't been assigned. But I'm ready to mail as soon as I know WHO get is.
This was made for the June Unique Holiday swap:
June 4 is Hug Your Cat day. June is also "Adopt a Cat" month. So even if my swap partner doesn't have a cat, they will now.
It's hard to see in the photos, but the eyes are black sequins held on with small yellow seed beads. The nose is a larger bead.
The body is some fabric I had in my scrap bin. I think I got it in a scrap swap, it was a really small piece that was just perfect for this project. The tail is black felt I glued onto the back.
I recycled some ribbon for the neck bow.
And I got to use one of my super cute budgie buttons for the tail. The tail is folded over ric rac that I sewed together to make it rigid and to keep the button from flopping down so you couldn't see it.
This is a very simple dotee that took only about an hour start to finish but I really like it. Now I just need the swap host to assign partners so I can mail it out. It has to be mailed by June 1 and I'm going on vacation in a few days so I may have to mail it while I'm on vacation! Such excitement, be still my heart!
What's up next?
Under the Sea dotee. I'm hosting that swap and to be honest I haven't really thought about what to make just yet. But I have a while so maybe I'll think up something while I'm on vacation. I'm off to the beach so that should be good inspiration.
