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.

Over the Summer, Maddy wanted to experiment with using our new sewing machine and decided to have anotherĀ go at a bag she had tried once before and hadn’t been so pleased with. This time she put a little more thought into how to build up her pattern and layer the seams so it worked as she wanted and the result was really rather good. Here’s how it went… in fairly general terms! 1. Cut out two rectangles of fabric, the outer and the inner. In this case it was yellow spotty fabric and some calico inside. Put them right sides together and pin. 2. Stitch down each long side about 5mm from edge and turn through. 3. Fold the tops inwards so ragged edges are inside and pin flat. Ironing at this point is a good idea. 4. When you are happy the tops are level and the inside doesn’t show above the outside, stitch as neatly as possible, about 5mm from the edge. 5. Fold it in half so you have an accurate idea of the size of each panel. *** When Maddy did her version she actually attached the cat motif before the lining and sewing. On [...]
