The difficult part was deciding what to make. As you can see, I like big heads and small bodies. Originally, I was going to make two kitty plushies, and place magnets in their hands so they could "hug" or at least "hold paws," but that didn't work out too well. So I stuck with something more simple for now.
I chose to make a keychain, which ended up just being a little plushie, because Kevin said it would "melt" if she hung it in her car.
I made a template, and traced it onto black fleece.
Then cut the kitty out of the fleece, and began hand-embroidering all the details.
Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye. I use to say that a lot during elementary school. Who thinks of these things?
I ended up not liking the nose white, so I changed it to pink. Well during that process, the nose also got bigger. urgh. The only other thing I wish I could have changed was the size of the pink part of the ears, they ended being too big.
I forgot to take a picture of the back. I had embroidered her name, Rose, along the tail. I shall make a cuter Captain later, and maybe even a Buzz (her new kitten)!
