I was in a Valentine swap with some friends. They're all pet lovers so I made these kitty cat yarn dolls for them.
The first one is for a genuine cat-lady in training
who loves the 1970s, the color orange.
The whole time I was figuring out her outfit I was thinking of Carol Brady. The button fastening her vest is a bead and the flower "brooch" on her lapel is a couple of beads, too.
Here's her long tail and cute backside:
The second one is for a lady who knows how to throw a party and make everything from the invitations to the desserts.
She wears an apron with a heart shaped bib and carries what must be a 3-layer cake! There's big pink bow tying her apron in the back.
Pre-made pompon muzzles and noses, felt mouths, sewn-on sequin and bead eyes, felt and wire ears.
The third kitty is for a lady who loves her some western wear and some pink!
She's the Sheriff of Love with a tin heart instead of a tin star, tooled "leather" vest, denim & lace circle skirt, and a big ol' belt buckle.
Here's the only thing: I thought it would be easy to find a small cowgirl hat for her. It was not. So I found a tutorial online for making miniature western hats, found some white wool blend felt in town and made it by making a form from a wine cork!
I had a lot of fun figuring out what do to for each friend and spending hours in the craft room/office giggling and making them. I hope they like them!
