homemade monday part deux: cat! cat!

i just finished this little cat softie and wanted to share. it's another prezzie for tristan's first birthday. his first word after mom & dad was cat. it is so sweet the way he says it: ". . . attt!. . . attt!"

the instructions & pattern for this little guy are in the book, softies only a mother could love. it is admittedly probably one of the easier projects in the book. there are many sweet creatures in the book, including an owl i'd really like to make as well.

i stuffed this feline with wool, and used one of the few fabric remnants i still have from when i worked in an import fabric shop in berkeley in the late 90's.

do you think it's a buddhist cat or a hindu cat?
