Meeow

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

Attempts: 2!

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)

Basket of Alphabet Letters

I’ve been remiss on posting for awhile (slacker). I should have actually posted this project in the spring…

For FIRST BIRTHDAY presents I made some alphabet letters. Two of my friends were having first birthdays for their daughters, I had lots of extra fabric, and voila. Fantastic gift. Soft enough to put in their mouths without breaking, they can throw them around, and easy to put away, and as they continue to grow, they can start to spell words out on the floor as they learn:

I was ambitious enough to do UPPER and LOWER case as well.
