Canvas Corp Brand CCB Creative CrewIsn’t she adorable?!?  I fell in love.  So, now I have 5 cats.  lol.

The Canvas Corp Brand fabric was wonderful to work with.  It had just the right amount of body and was easy to sew and paint.

PS.  I was The Royal Imperial Poobah was I was very young. 🙂

Steps:

  1. Find image to use as pattern and size.  I used a modified Silhouette file and created an offset at .25 inches as the cutting line.
  2. Put two fabrics back sides together with the pattern on top, pin, and cut.  I used Black Ticking Canvas and Damask Printed Canvas.
  3. Paint fabric.  Sprayed with Glimmer Mist – Penny and Chalkboard – Bittersweet.  Then use a large flourish stamp with craft paint.  Allow to dry.  Set by ironing.  I don’t anticipate this getting heaving usage or needing to be washed.
  4. Create eyes.  I traced the outline from the pattern using a lightbox and a black Sharpie.  I then filled in with High Impact – Purple and Glimmer Mist – Purple Rain.
  5. Sew:  Put the back sides together, pin, and sew it together.  Use a small strong stitch, it needs to withstand all the stuffing. Leaving an open space for stuffing.
  6. Stuff!
  7. Stitch up the open space.  I used a back stitch.
  8. Whiskers are black cording tied in a square knot with a third piece slipped into the middle before tightening.
  9. Collar is jute tied in a bow with a lanyard clasp.
  10. I thought the tail needed some definition so I sewed the center tight with embroidery thread, did a few French knots, and then a few loose stitches for dimension.
