I thought you might like to see what I have been working on today. It is an appliqued cat cushion. It is a custom order. I don't often do custom orders and when I do, I find that I often don't enjoy them. This one though is turning out to be fun.
It is for a lady in Lancashire who recently purchased my applique owl cushion. She was so pleased with it that she asked if I could do her a similar thing only with a cat. It is for a Christmas present.
This is the owl cushion that she was so pleased with.
She has left all elements of the cat cushion up to me including the colour choice. I am not great at drawing so my cat is very basic and "stylised" not an exact replica! The design elements of the cushion are the same. An appliqued central panel with a patterned border, then a border of patchwork rectangles and eventually another border, probably plain.
This is how it looks so far.
Clearly it is a work in progress. The cat is not finished yet. He will have eyes, nose and embroidered whiskers. Not sure how I will do the eyes. I am thinking of adding a tiny mouse.
What do you think? I am quite pleased with it. I'll post another photo once it is complete.
