Having seen the Christmas stockings I made last year for Raja and Mrs Potts (posted previously in “A bit of Christmas”), Bozo, Lucy and Wally were heard to mew, “What about stockings for us!?!?” I didn’t actually hear the mew, but it was passed on to me by my brother Dave.
There is only one challenge in coming up with numerous cat gear: finding cat-related fabric that is tolerable, with the additional condition that it needs also to have a Christmas theme. E-bay was the mother lode, as well as the generosity of fellow quilters.
These stocking turned out to be soooo much fun to make, since I could do anything I wanted. And I didn’t stop at the ones for the cats. I continued on with tropical themes for Dave and Wendy, too.
Try doing something so fun and whimsical. It’s a blast!!
Comment about the lettering—-Since I have been asked numerous times, I confess I do not have a special attachment to my machine to make the lettering for the names. It is done the old fashioned way–by hand. Find wonderful free fonts online, print out a name, and transfer to the right side of the fabric using a light box. One must be dedicated when cats are involved.
