I originally created this elegant cat appliqué pattern when I wanted something special for a quick “poodle” skirt to wear to a sock hop. Dogs aren’t really my thing, but cats are! “Good Mews” – this appliqué design can add style and personality to your next project, as well.I kept the design simple, with the outline and the eyes creating the character of this kitty. Of course, you could always dress her up more with a mouth and whiskers, lashes, bows, or jewelry. The eyes can be appliquéd and/or embroidered for a pop of color or to express the subtle personality of your particular cat. This pattern is suitable for use with wool felt or with woven fabrics if fused to a backing.
It is sized from 3” all the way up to 15”, it’s perfect for everything from a small zippered pouch to a 1950s circle skirt. The images show a 3″, 5″, and 15″ used on pouches and a felt “poodle” skirt. On the larger cat, the eyes have been appliquéd in felt, with embroidered irises. On the smaller cats the eyes have been embroidered.
I can think think of so many places this sweet cat appliqué could find a home – skirts, bags, shirts, quilts.. you name it! Where would you put her?
You can find this pattern and the sample pouches over in my Etsy shop.
