A while ago I made a pointy kitty called Sharpie and posted him on Craftster. I decided to make a few more, but this time smaller and in funky colours!



The photo above shows Sharpie, who can be found on Craftster here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407117.0 and on my blog http://www.whatastitchup.com/?p=109, and Chirpy, one of my new kitties. I included this photo to demonstrate the size difference.

Here's Chirpy again...



And here's a photo of my other new kitty, Pusskin



Chirpy and Pusskin are made from the same pattern as Sharpie, but reduced in sized. The pattern is a Wee Wonderfuls original pattern http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/store/pointykitty.html, designed by Hillary Lang and is available for free.



The pattern suggests using buttons for eyes, but I like to give the kitties a funny face using felt. I designed these faces myself and since I knew that these kitties were not for children to play with, I glued them on with fabric glue rather than stitching them on.



The pattern has additional zigzag stripe markings that can be added to the body and head, but the fabric I used already gave the kitties interesting patterns, so I felt that the stripes were not needed here.

The material used for these two little kitties are made from quilting block fabric, designed by Ellen Luckett Baker, of The Long Thread http://thelongthread.com/.



I'm happy to announce that both Chirpy and Pusskin do not seem to have the same problem where they end up doing the splits (or is this a skill?). Also, I managed to attach their heads so they don't wobble around so much!



I had lots of fun making them. Apart from gluing on their faces, they were completely hand-sewn. I also experimented on giving them different silly faces. I won't include them here, but if you are interested they are on my blog http://www.whatastitchup.com/?p=174

I hope you like them!
