Re-creating cloth cats
Sheila Barrow made the iris picture in the background. Foreground cat by Lin Harley, background cat by me. Many years ago I bought the green ribbon cat from my friend Lin. I've always liked it but now it is very faded. So last night I made another two. (I can't do the string until I get to work as my big sewing needles are on the desk there.) I guess if I went back to Hobbycraft I might find some of those small wood spools as well. The attractive winter print fabric I think I got from Ben Franklin (?) in the States again a long time ago. It's a soft brushed cotton and this is a good use for it.
