Einstein and Sugar Plum are two adorable little cats but with paws that move and a tail that swishes these two might have a little attitude. I'm not sure if they caught a critter or if they are toying with me. I'll let you decide. Cats will be cats! And girls love them! Impress your friends with this funky little bag. It looks like you slaved over it but in reality the majority of embroidery work is machine stitched but looks like handwork. Just the right size for her iPod or DS. She may not need a place to carry her lipstick but she certainly does not want to get caught stuck without her games or music. Who would suspect the cat holds her games. Don't let the cat out of the bag and no one will guess. The approximate size is 6'x 8" x2" with a 9 inch zipper closure at the top. A stuffed tail hangs off the bag and stuffed paws to grab for her toy. The lining of the bag has been fused by an adhesive sheet (Heat N Bond is what I used) to an underlayer of fabric resulting in a sturdy stand-on-your-own bag. Color coordinte to her pet cat. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing skills are all that are necessary. Detailed instructions with photos and drawings are included for all instructions. Basic machine stitches replace the majority of the handwork. Very little handwork involved. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximate size 6 x 8 x 2

Recommended with this pattern

  • Large scraps for body of bag. Scraps for facial features, arms, paws and tail
  • Heat and Fuse Adhesive sheets
  • Black embroidery floss

I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.
