Orphan Kitty

There's so many reasons I like giving my daughter handmade presents. This kitty took me about 5 hours to sew and make clothes and backpack for. She also carries two mini handmade books in her pack. Keith did the packaging. She comes with adoption papers, like Build a Bear, but not cookie cutter. 

The rag tag look is because I restricted myself to just using supplies I already had.  

The awesome byproduct of me sequestering myself with this project is that it kept me out of Target during the time of year that I absolutely hate to shop. 

Here's wishing everyone a happy and creative holiday! Let's all do more handmade things in 2016!
