My name is Phillippa and I am a practising textile artist here in England. After finishing my degree in embroidered textiles in 2006 in which I spent much of the time working with recycled materials and fusing them with tradition embroidery stitches. I then went on to create my first DVD entitled Free Machine Embroidery for the Complete Beginner. This shows you how to free machine embroider on a basic sewing machine. I work part-time for a large department store John Lewis, in the textile department in which I give craft and sewing machine demonstrations. Now that I have finished filming I have got quite a taste for it and hope to design some short You Tube (how too) films with the view of creating my own patterns. Life is one great learning curve.
These Crazy Cats are easy and quick to make, with an optional love heart message you can make them for your Valetine or as a super Mother day gift. The instruction include an alphabet so you can have fun making your own special message. If your into patchwork and quilting these designs can be used as central applique motif, which makes them both fun and versatile. I hope you have as much fun making and given these designs as I have creating them. As you can see my own cat Misty always takes an interest in my new designs. Twenty five percent of your purchase price will be given to the RSPCA to help real cats in need.
Happy stitching FabricPhilly
