Door Stop Hop


 
WELCOME!
It's my day for the Door Stop...
Meet the crazy garden cat. He sits by the door to let
visitors know that I am Out in the Garden.
Boy! Can't wait for Spring!
I didn't follow a pattern, I just made him as I went along.
I used....
Muslin for the body, fabric scraps, some Ruby is in there....
a little embroidery thread, stuffing, 2 bags of beans
sewn in a pouch & placed inside to weigh him down.
 
 
the banner just sort of came about because I love them so....and I needed to bring color in....so I started folding 2.5" fabric squares into triangles. I stitched them, placed them and sewed them down with some rick-rack.

 
I liked that alright...now I need something here.....so I began pulling threads and stitching. One of my favs... Garden Stitching! came to mind....so I spelled it out and stitched. Added some flowers and then made a small patchwork strip running across the bottom.
 
 
gotta' go thru the button jar for projects like these....so I did...
found two yellow ones and liked that ok....so I sewed them on.
 
His eyes were stitched
 
 
a heart shaped nose...ruby cheeks and some grey whiskers....

He went thru the sewing machine...attaching the ears and a bottom.
Stuffed nicely and then my bean bag, I sewed up
went inside and lays at the bottom for weight.
He turned out pretty cute I think....
and he'll sit at the door in the spring
when I am out there pulling weeds.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed!
Happy sewing and......
Thanks to Madame Samm and Hostess-Cheerleader Carla
for a great HOP! 
Now... Go Visit the others...Yay!

  10. I love your cat! That banner is a great idea! One question, though, where does he (or she of course) go in winter? Since then you will not spend much time in the garden.....He could, you know, work for someone else in that time....perhaps? Well done you.

  32. Susie, your kitty is adorable! I wish I could design and fly by the seat of my pants but I know I am more an interpreter of patterns, tweaking instead of drawing or changing the methods of getting there. Well done!
