Hello cat!

I have been admiring Maiike Soft Things for a while now and have been keeping my eye out for a suitable garment to recycle into a cute little creature. One of Isabella's baby cardigans recently made it back to us and I decided it was too felted and out of shape to be worn by another bub. It was my favourite of her little knits (sorry Mum) so I recycled it into this little cat!


The head is made of a wool/cashmere mix that I bought from Rathdowne Remnants. Arms and legs are scraps from my fabric stash and button eyes are recycled. Cute!!
