I made this last night so I could have a little halloween themed purse to use next month.

http://www.auroraseven.com/alison/craftster/catbag.jpg

The whole thing is made out wool felt, because I didn't want to have to deal with seams and fraying. It took about 30 minutes from start to finish.

1. I found this wooden mask at Joanns, so I used it as a template.  Cut out 3, (2 black and 1 white).  On one of the black, also cut out the eye holes and teeth.

2. Cut out 2 small triangles from orange, and one from green.  Use embroidery floss to applique these to the front site of the black face with the holes cut out.

3. Take the appliqued face and the white face, and sew along the top from the tip of one ear, across the middle, and to the top of the other ear.

4. Then add the 2nd black piece and sew along the outside edge.

5. Outline the eyes and teeth with white embroidery floss and glue 2 small black circles to the center of the eyes.

6. Cut a 8 inch by 4 inch piece of green felt.  Fold it in half and stitch up the middle.  Attach one end to the back of each ear for a handle.

ok, you inspired me to make  a pumpkin...it didn't turn out as creepy as i wanted, but it will do.
created the same as the cat by tracing a wooden cutout from joann's and layering wool.
