I love cats and I love bugs so one day I doodled a bunch of cat and bug hybrids and decided to make my favorite ones into the real thing!

http://images.bigcartel.com/bigcartel/product_images/159307657/max_h-1000+max_w-1000/IMG_4900.JPG

The first one I made was inspired by the Parsleyworm!  Made with mostly fleece and felt, and little faux fur details.

And this one I was absolutely obsessed with the idea of little ladybug cats with tiny tails and multiple paws.  Made with mostly fleece.

And these I just finished last night, the Woolly Cat-erpillars!  Inspired by those fuzzy little striped caterpillars I'd find crawling around my backyard as a kid.  Mostly made of long pile faux fur with felt details. Smiley

ErhmaGURD!  Way so CUTE!  The first one reminds me a bit of the Cat Bus, but still unique.  Wonderful smash-up Grin

These are both adorable and slightly terrifying. I'm in love with the ladybug cat!

Wonderfully cute.  I thought the thumbnail was an OctoPuss  Wink
I love the Cat- erpillars, but  I think my favourite is the ladybird cat.

These are really cute! Love your use of the faux fur (I especially love the wooly bears!)

Wow, these are all really awesome!  I've seen all sorts of hybrid cat creatures over the years, but, you're the first person I've ever seen combine them with insects, and the results are fabulous.

You should try pitching these to some of the bigger plush toy companies; I bet they'd be a big hit with kids and cat lovers alike!
