I have always loved sewing fun things out of polyester felt, and I also love cats.  Just for fun I made a bunch of cat's wearing Santa hats Christmas ornaments this past year, and to my surprise everyone I knew wanted one!  I was sewing around the clock to complete orders before Christmas.  After the craziness of the holidays passed I started to think outside the box of what else I could do with these adorable ornaments, and then the whole body cat ornament was born.  After that I made a Cheshire Cat, and a cat version of The Joker, and that is where you come in.  I want to know what crazy cat ideas you can come up with, and help me to keep this dream going :) 

The Joker as a cat!

As every cat owner knows, every cat has their own distinct personality.  My cat came from the shelter with the name Lovie, which I kept because it suited her so well, but after really getting to know her, I gave her the nickname of Loki because she loves getting into mischief.  And then she earned the nickname of Gandalf the Grey and White, well, because, she is grey and white ;)

So let your cat's secret personality shine through in one of these custom ornaments, or just capture their sweet face :)

These ornaments are great for Christmas trees, but can be hung just about anywhere.  I use mine to fill in small empty spaces on walls, etc.

Thank you for checking out my project and I hope you love my cats as much as I love making them :)

Risks and challenges

I am the only person working on this project, so there will be no delays, etc, based on other people.
Felt only comes in a limited amount of colors, so some cats will be a challenge to make, but my creativeness has always helped me to overcome this.
