Here's my new pirate kitty, made for a gift basket in a silent auction at my daughter's school:

Complete with earring, eye patch (minus the eye--I borrowed that idea from another doll I saw on flickr), and peg leg.


The vegetables are for another gift basket:

The eggplant was a pattern from a Japanese crochet pattern book, and the other two I just made up as I went. 

Each class decides what thier gift basket theme will be and each child donates items for it. Naturally our stuff had to be crocheted!  One theme was pirates, the other, gardening.  I'm planning on putting some real seeds in with the gardening one too.

Pirate Kitty Cheesy I really liked your halloween cat, but this one is awesome!  My youngest son loves pirates and cats, so you made him the perfect toy.  I wish I could bid on the basket.
