My kiddo and I went to Avon, Colorado in September with the grandparents and they have the BEST little library there. Of course my kiddo found a book that featured a cat. A black cat like we have. A black cat named Meeow. Which then became his favorite book all trip and we had to hang onto it until the end AND check out the other 3 in the series. Which then lead to finding the on amazon. “Meeow and the Big Box” by Sebastien Braun
Which then in turn lead to making him his OWN Meeow.
Used: Felt for the eyes, nose and scarf with embroidery thread, soft black fabric from Michaels
Template: made a copy of Meeow from the book and then cut out the black from fabric
First attempt I had put the eyes and nose on first then sewed his body BUT this black velvety fabric was NOT forgiving and the edges were fraying and there were holes once turned inside out….so into the trash that one went! Second time around I did just the black fabric cat, got him all stuffed overall THEN added the eyes and nose. (worked out much better)
