Cute cat pillow

And today’s little creation is this cute cat pillow.

I am totally a cat-a-holic !! I have three in my house and given half a chance I would have a houseful.  My retiring dream would be to own a house and convert it into a cat sanctuary for unwanted cats. I love the little furry creatures xxx

So it delighted me to make this pillow today. The motif is from a patchwork magazine I brought ages ago (where I also made the cat doorstop from) It is meant to be part of a big patchwork throw, but I’ve just used the one motif to create this. I’ve used several pieces of material to make it a little different.  I used the motif stitch on my sewing machine too which got a Lot easier the more I went on.  I’ve added a cute love heart button for its nose and hand stitched the remaining details.  Then finished it off with a little bow.

At the moment this lives in my sewing den, but I think I might put it more on show somewhere xxx
