Last month I started hooking this colourful projet
picture and pattern from Amigurumi Today.
Lots of pretty bright colours to keep me amused with those stripes.
And it wasn’t too long before I had all the bits made . . . just had the last job to do (which is my least favourite): sewing bits together and then fretting over facial detail.
Now, since this cat is going to be a present for a baby, I and Mrs Tattoo agreed we didn’t want safety eyes like on the model. Mrs Tattoo asked for eyes to be embroidered “asleep”. I did my best.
And now, before you start giggling (because there’s something rather obvious between cats legs) . . . can I ask, where on earth is the tail on the cat in the designer pattern photos????
Another photo from Amigurumi Today – not even a hint of a tail. Did they forget to add it, or did they photoshop it away? Anyway, my version has sleeping eyes and a very obvious tail. For which I shall make no excuses! Final (headless) photo of cat with Daisy (my big doll). He came out a bit bigger than I expected but, up against Daisy who is 92cm tall, he doesn’t look too ginormous.
