* A Trio of Kitties

Posted on January 30th, 2008 by amy. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts, Toys (cat and kid).

Hello there – Amy here. I made these Denyse Schmidt kitties for Becket’s baby shower: Papa, Mama, and Baby, from the “Steve” pattern.

Baby kitten was 1/3 smaller than Papa and Mama and made of a lovely wool felt contributed by Maitreya. Turning those arms and legs from felt was a bit tough!! You might recognize Papa’s ears and tummy from other Craftlog projects, a piece of material Becket used in her very first sewing project, which also made an appearance in the Baby Shower Pocket Quilt. Other trimmings came from Maitreya’s terrific collection, and from one of my excursions to MJ Trimmings. The button eyes were from The Great Philadelphia Button Haul (and mean that these kitties are shelf toys rather than for baby).

    Ohmygosh! Those are the sweetest things. What a thoughtful idea for a baby shower. I love all their different expressions.

    I love these! I made one of these for a Christmas tree topper a couple of years ago, but it didn’t look cute like yours. (Mine, frankly, looked slightly deranged.) I especially love the fabric combo on the one on the right (Mama?)!

    Awesome! What a cute kitty family. And all the little embellishments give them so much personality!

    Hello – from Western Australia.
    I really love these kittens and would dearly love to make some for my grandchildren.
    I live in the outback of northern West Australia.
    Would it please be possible for someone to send me a copy of this pattern?

    Many thanks and very much appreciation – (in
    anticipation) carole

    Hi Carole, maybe you can get the book from your library? A lot of them will do interlibrary loans for free if your local branch doesn’t have a copy.
