One of Kate's requests; I'd have skipped the cat myself because it's such a simple and common variation but it was hard to say no to her. This was supposed to be a solid cat with felt markings, but I couldn't believe how hard it was to find a solid ginger-orange fleece for this guy. All the stores had were bolts of Halloween Orange, Neon Huntingvest, Rapunzelhair Gold, Rumplestiltskin Straw and Bandaid Tan (I made up those names in frustration; don't go asking for them in JoAnn unless you want to be kicked out). Eventually, I decided to settle for print. The prints weren't exempt from the funky shades, either, but this tie-dyed one at least didn't have skulls or team mascots on it.
It made a good sleepy kitty, even if it wasn't quite the ginger tabby I'd imagined. And it was a superfast sew, since there were no body embellishments at all.
