Have you looked at your desk latley and said.... this clearly doesn't accuratley reflect my sheer nerddom? Well, let your desk reach new nerd heights. Presenting... the unholy fusion of longcat and keyboard cat, with a little extra nerd thrown in for good measure. And it keeps your wrists comfy!



Hand embroidered and made out of a tea towel. Longkeyboardcat is loooooooooonnnnggg.
(No idea what I'm talking about? Know your meme...)



This guy was actually a birthday present for my geeky husband, so he's sitting on his desk now. I already miss him...



MINI TUTE!!

Keyboard cat is pretty easy to make. All you need is a tea towel, some rice, and some mad embroidery skillz...

Here's the basic idea of him. Just measure the length of your keyboard, and add around 4 inches for width. Then draw out a slightly blocky little lump for keyboard cats head, and some roundy little arms and legs. Don't forget his tail!


Kitteh embroidereh!


Cut out his head, make him some dorky ears, and stitch that kitty together. Don't forget to leave  a gap! Then fill your kitty head with rice (you don't hear that every day) and stitch him shut. Seriously, is that not the dorkiest kitty head you've ever seen in your life? Even his ears look dorky.


Stitch and turn that kitty some legs and a little tail, and the fill them up with just a little bit of rice each. Stitch them shut at the open end.


Give that kitty some legs! Place your two body pieces right sides together, with the legs and tail at either end facing in. Sew a seam around him, leaving a small gap at the top of one edge.


Turn that kitty right side out, fill him nice and plump with rice, and stitch that edge shut. Finally, take that kitty head and stitch it on!



KITTEH!!


Congratulations. You're a Nerd.
