Katy Kitty

Way back in April, I found a great pattern for some adorable little bunnies that I made my girls for Easter. The pattern is by Larissa of mmmcrafts. At the same time I also found that she had a cute little kitty doll called Katy Kitty. I knew when I saw it that I had to make one for my daughter, Kaitlin, for her birthday... in November. So when November got here I bought the pattern on Etsy and went shopping for fabric.

I knew I wanted to do the body out of corduroy (like the pattern calls for) and I fell in love with the gray. I wasn't sure what do for the rest but then I was walking across the store and I saw this wonderful pink, orange and gray flower print out of the corner of my eye. I stopped and picked it up. The more I looked at it the more I liked it. They rest of the fabrics just sort of fell into place. After sewing with Stephanie (of course) and then going home and sewing very late into the night before Kaitlin's birthday, I finished one very adorable Katy Kitty...

  1. Katy turned out so great! I really love the grey combined with the pinks and oranges! It is an unusual combo but it really works. And thanks very much for the kind words and the links to the patterns, it's much appreciated. Lovely.
