another cat block

dsc05668

This is the third cat block. I took the pattern from pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/570972058990043301/.  These kinds of blocks are somewhat tedious to put together, but they are so impactful when they are done, that I periodically get sucked into one. I think this one took me about three weeks of fairly feckless sewing.

 

Purse

Finished this purse a few weeks ago:

Lately I have been about quilts as garments and this was a first idea.I have the beginning of a jacket as well. The inside of pockets and the bag lining are bright orange.  This was Steve’s idea. I love this idea and am still amused by the little surprise of the the color. I used small bits of it on the strap as well. The strap is intentionally not even, creating a sinewy sensual line. I usually wear it across the body, so it is a nice semi vertical line. I also used several polymer clay objects that I had made a long time ago. By and large, I am happy with it, although it could be slightly bigger inside.  Next time I will spend some time thinking about making a flat bottom so more items will fit inside.
