Little Blue Cat!

I've been getting interested (again) in crafting and sewing, and recently stocked up on some of the essentials I didn't already have, with the intent on embarking on a new era of my life: an era of cuteness! To this end, I made an inaugural little squashy stuffed animal last week, the first, I hope, of many.

I sewed a little blue kitty with embroidered features. I used this free pattern I found online, with fleece instead of terrycloth, and the addition of a pipe cleaner sewn into the tail for maximum fun and bendiness. It turned out very cute, if I do say so myself!

Last weekend, I bundled the little blue kitty up in wrapping paper and toted it off to a baby shower, where a group of ladies sipping tea out of a fancy tea service cooed and fussed over it. Gratifying! I'm told by the expecting mother that the older sibling of the impending baby has already claimed the kitty as his own.
