Well....this took foreva, and I kinda messed it up numerous times because I was trying to use extra thick interfacing (for Amy Butler's Madison bag) that people said to use, but my sewing machine didn't like it, etc., etc.  But I like how the wool felt kitty turned out!  Plus I've only been sewing for 2 weeks, so I figure it's not bad for a beginner!  I may get fired from my job (I work at home!) if I don't stop sewing and start working!

Really cute fabric and wonderful kitty. You made an impressive bag for sewing such a short time. I know we'll see lots of cute things in the future, as well.

Thanks so much for all your nice comments!  It makes me feel good since I'm so new to sewing!  It isn't much different from a Jordy, but it's from this Amy Butler pattern--

http://www.artofthemidwest.com/amybutler/pattern_display.phtml?id=2

It's an easy pattern, but I had read a bunch of stuff in other threads about how it's better to use really thick interfacing (like pelltex) to help it keep its shape, and that led to many arguments with my sewing machine, and various rippings out, etc., etc.  You can see the corners aren't quite right still, but at least it's carry-able!  Wink

Sure...I'm not sure why it didn't work...it's called a Madison bag, and it's an Amy Butler pattern-- her website is:
http://www.artofthemidwest.com/

And then you can look it up under her sewing patterns!  Smiley
