"Cat Cushion."


I made up this  cushion with a design of a cat for Lucy.  It was the purrfect thing to make for Lucy as she is such a cat lover. I used some of the cat  fabric she brought back from Melbourne from Lucello's.

There were three sizes of the embroidery design to stitch out. This one on the cushion is the largest size.

When I first saw this design I instantly thought of Marina who blogs at Maisie and the Boys, so I sent this sample to her for Maisie, her cat.

This one is the medium size of the design.The design was a freebie on the Urban Threads site. They have some wonderful designs and offer both machine embroidery and hand sewing patterns. Can't wait to see what Marina makes with this.

What have you been making this week? Anything interesting or is it a secret project. There seems to be lots of that going on.

Happy days.
Bev C

such cute embroidery,
your cushion looks great.
will have to think of something to make with mine. Perhaps a mini to hang over maisie's bed? That means it would have to move around the house most of the day!
thankyou for thinking of Maisiex

I love this project! Those glasses are so awesome. I've been searching for some fall crafts to work on, since our leaves are changing colors here. Also have a patchwork zip pouch in progress.
