I made these pillows for two recent swap partners. The first was for my partner in the Mini-Xmas swap who is a Siamese cat lover. The second was for my partner in the Mini-Halloween swap who loves black cats. I cut the designs out of felt, stitched them onto the fabric and then sewed them up using a simple pillow cover pattern.

The design for this cat was inspired by a drawing I saw of a cat with really skinny legs Smiley.


This one was inspired by a picture I saw while doing a Google image search for "black cat".


Thanks for looking!

So cute.  I love how you coordinated the Siamese eyes with the pillow fabric.  I dig primitive Halloween decor, too, so your black cat's also a winner.  Lucky partners.

I saw this and immediately thought of Lady and the Tramp.
