Hello kitty!

I was feeling ambitious, and was determined to finish the kitty today. So, I pressed onward!

Meet...uh...Kitty! Yes. I suck at naming. Would any of you lovely people like to take a stab at naming him/her?

Of course, it's not a stackable cat unless, well, stacked on another kitty. Therefore...

Some things I learned thanks to this project:
1) Mattress stitch - Wow is this ever a neat technique! Quite magical indeed.
2) I suck at embroidery.
3) Making toys so so much fun! And you get to be a little lazy with your ends because you can always hide them in the stuffing. I love that part.

Okay....back to my Monkeys now I suppose (^__^)

Wow, Kitty (I'm pretty bad with the names too, I think he looks Japanese, though =)) is so frickin' adorable! I think you did a great job with the embroidery!

Heh, stuff-on-the-kitty. So much fun, isn't it? =)

Hee hee. Stuff-on-kitty is very much fun. Hantarou is the only one who will submit to it though. Dany is far too refined to allow me to take photos of her in such a disgraced state (haha!).

And thanks for the compliments! I'm actually looking forward to making another one very soon!

Toys are fun! Your Kitty looks so cute. I knit a Teddy Bear once - the Bobbi Bear pattern that I really liked. I've been eyeing these guys here: http://ysolda.com/store/toys/

Have fun with your stackable kitties!
