We’ve been having a bit of fun crafting cats recently and while off school recovering from a nasty bug, all the girls indulged me by making some cat patterns to display on the blog. We’ve not got as far as drawing them as patterns yet, but it may well happen! I think top marks has to go to Amelie on this occasion for her rather fabulous large cat, done across 4 large interconnecting square boards. He reminded me of Top Cat (so we watched a bit of him on You Tube to introduce her to the character she had inadvertently recreated!) and I think he is pretty impressive for a cat who came directly from brain to fingers. She made this one after doing two other cat faces which inspired her to go for something bigger. Cat in a top hat done on a single large square board. Cute kitten face done on a large hexagon board. Fran humoured me with a couple of cats made on the Hama Cat Pegboard. She did a nice job though For a closer look at Maddy’s blue cat, pop over to Simple Crafts and see him.

While browsing for inspiration to make my own polymer clay cat the other week, I happened upon this little cutey. It’s hard to improve upon such an adorable, cuddly yet sleek, little kitty cat. I love the finish, the simple design, his pudgy little features and his scrumptious pumpkin. This is from an Etsy store, Helen’s Clay Art. I did have a go at making some cats of my own and the results are over on Simple Crafts. Wizard Cats… no arguing with them! For more inspiration and Cat Crafts, see our Pinterest board.

If you read our other blog, the one about out family, you’ll know it is now nearly 4 years since our little boy fdied at 11 days old. He was an April baby and daffodils are the flower that we most associate with him. This year though, the mild winter means they are already flowering and will be gone before his birthday. I’ve asked some blogging friends to join us in making daffodil crafts to light up April with yellow anyway. Today I had reason to play with chenille stems and made this little pretty. It couldn’t be simpler. Join two yellow stems by twisting the ends to make a long stem. Make a zigzag with 6 points, then join them into a circle with another twist. Use an orange stem to bind the centre together with crossovers (a bit like weaving a star into the middle of the flower) until it is solid and holds flat. Use another orange stem to coil a trumpet, then use the last inch to bind over so that it stays a tight coil. Glue into place. Work a half green stem into the back of the flower for a stalk and twist a [...]
