A New Cat

Cat shaped cushion, made with vintage and upcycled materials. Cat shaped pillow. Plaid fabric.

Last year, I found a lovely vintage cat. I called it Maguire, and ummed and ahhed over whether to keep it or sell it. In the end, Maguire was sold.

Then last month, the idea of making my own version of Maguire popped into my head and wouldn’t go away. So, I drew up a pattern and got sewing. This was the result. Cat shaped cushion, made with vintage and upcycled materials. Cat shaped pillow. Plaid fabric.It’s made with plaid fabric from an old pair of trousers, and a few other vintage fabrics for the back and neck-tie. The doily detail is inspired by the lovely creations of Winter Owls.

I haven’t come up with a name yet, but I’m sure it won’t be too long before one springs to mind…
