I saw this cat at Hoop Love and wanted to put it on a towel. I added a bird because I just thought it needed it. The rick rack isn't sewn on yet and it's not ironed. I am going to mail it to my mom as part of her Mothers Day gift.

Thanks to JenB, Kittykill, and TreeCactus for their advice. The back looks very neat.

This is very cute, I do like the bird. What did you do to make the back look neat?

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

I am new to embroidery, so the back of my towels looked too messy. I asked for some tips to prevent this.

This super cute he reminds me of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. I agree the bird makes it awesome!

Thanks for the nice comments.
