Yesterday was the birthday party for the daughter of my dearest friends - Anna and Duncan.
Amalia was 5 and wanted a cat themed birthday party, so we had cat bowls with names on to eat party food, chalk drawn paw prints all over the front drive and sugar mice hunting.
She also wanted to "make stuff with Aunty Jolene", and so I got on my thinking cap, and came up with the idea of getting them making cat hand puppets.
I had already pre-sewn the basic shape, and sewn on the nose and mouth, I then popped onto the table various elements  for them to glue to the cat - patches for the tummy, ears and eyes. I had also sewn a button onto the rear end of the cat (It didnt hurt I promise), and I gave them each a length of cut up fluffy sock which I cut a quick botton hole in for them to slip onto the button - voila "TAIL !!!"
The final bit was a little bell on a pretty bit of button and tada !!! CATS !!!!!!!
Hope you enjoy



LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :

happy birthday sweetness
looks like it was fun

love to take part in personal swaps, I would love a poppet of my very own, or a doll like the ones made by Poppets & Lace

These cats look very cute. Sewing a button to let them add the tail was very smart of you.
