sweet faced girls

i finished these 2 lovelies this morning. i've been meaning to make more for quite some time. i think i just didn't have the right fabric.
i went to one of my favorite thrift stores and scored a really pretty silk tie with tiny flowers on it. as soon as i got home i harvested the fabric. i went through my antique kimono fabric and picked out something pretty. patterns out ans scissors at the ready i cut the last of that linen, and poof..... with a needle and thread i stitched some sweet little eyes and called them done.

pile of kitties

just finished sewing up a pile of kitty skins. it's a batch of bright cotton velvets and corduroy with a dash of foiled linen. i should be posting there progress through out the week. i'm really excited about all the colour. most of the fabric i scored at scrap. i love being able to reuse fabric that otherwise would end up in the landfill. alright back to stuffing and embroidering.
