wee kitty

I started working on this stuffed wee kitty from a wee wonderfuls pattern last fall and it's taken me about 6 months to finally finish it. I kept putting off the hand sewing, because it's just not as fun as using my sewing machine for things.



I scrapped the idea of making shoes for the kitty because I think she looks done enough and I'm not a fan of extending a project any longer than it absolutely has to take.



I think she's cute and I like all of the fabric and buttons that I picked out, but I just don't think stuffed animals are my thing...I like looking at them and seeing all of the fabric and color choices everyone makes, but it just takes too long to finish them by hand. Now I have a new found appreciation for all of the hard work that goes into making a softie and I have something finished to finally cross off my to-do list!

  1. Cute kitty! Love the fabric combo you chose. I made a pair of those last summer for my boys, and they were fun but I agree about the hand-sewing part. I always like the idea of stuffed animals (sewn or knitted) better than the actual making of them. The stuffing and the last bit of sewing up is such a drag.
    Great job, though!
