ICC#42- My Imaginary Kitty Friend

Our Iron Craft Challenge this week was to create an imaginary friend.  I decided to make something for my niece because she's perfect and I love her.  I made her a stuffed orange kitty because I have an orange tabby named Milo and their family has an orange kitty named Murray. 

I had seen stuffed animals done like this before so I thought I would give it a try.  I drew a cat on paper and then cut it out.  Once I had traced it onto the fabric, I stitched the outline with my sewing machine.  I then filled in the details.

Finally, I stitched two pieces of fabric together around the cat, turned it inside out and stuffed it.  Now I have a little kitty pillow/stuffed animal.  I can't wait to give it to Adriana over Christmas!

  1. Such a simple way to get a really great looking, interesting pillow friend.

  2. That is so cute! And I love that last photo of Milo with his new friend :)

  3. That is the most adorable thing I've ever seen! I love your sentence, "because she is perfect and I love her" too:)
