I made this for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween swap.
 


It's based on this image.  https://halloween-fun.net/wp-content/uploads/halloween%20tag/Vintage%20Halloween%20Clipart%20Cat_11.jpg
I made my own pattern and worked it in two-drop peyote stitch.

I had a panic attack about two thirds thru as I was afraid if was beginning to resemble an offensive "black jigaboo" sort of image but one of my student worker suggested the addition of whiskers to fix the image as a cat.  Luckily that did the trick and I was happy with the result.

This is so cute! I love it!
Also the scare is funny (sorry!) I know what you mean but it never entered my mind when I saw the kitty!

LOL!  You're probably right.  You know how it is when you stare at something for too long;  you start to see things!  Still, it's also amazing how a slight tweak will change an object for the better.

Oh, I see it but only because you pointed it out. The whiskers totally saved the day, it turned out looking great!

Well done on creating your own pattern.  It came out really well.  And like others, I hadn't thought that until you pointed it out, but yes, the whiskers totally do save the day.
