I am so glad kitty #2 is safe at home! Susanb, I loved making everything, even second time around! I just felt that you really, really needed
that stuffie... and I would have even crafted a third time for you
! I am truly touched by your kind words as well, thank you
And so I will share what didn't make it...
The looms I found were pretty basic. I know nothing about weaving so just youtubed a video on how to start. This is the piece of fabric I wove for kitty #1:
I then just sewed this into a tube for the cat body.
I actually smartened up and on the second kitty I sewed his front legs over
the seam, so I think kitty 2 came out a lot neater.
Here are the cuffs that didn't make it:
I dyed cheese cloth for texture on these, but didn't have enough left for the replacement cuff
I couldn't find Coffee Crisps (stalking told me she's a fan of these!) at any of the international candy shops in my city, so I sent along a box of these:
I couldn't resist those hippo faces! (plus I love anything kinder!)
I didn't take pictures of the linens that I wrapped everything in, but I think they were similar to the ones in the package that susanab posted.
