C...cat....C A T

This week it is the letter "C" for Alphabe-Thursday...I know what first came to mind, but then
I thought I should think about it...so, I thought about CARDBOARD...great for using in collages.
Oh yes...CUPCAKE...yummmm (from Whole Foods!!)
BUT...the FIRST thing that popped into my mind was C A T S. I made these two
felted cats to look like my daughters two cats...
Here is Poodie, checking out his felted buddy
This is Bug, checking out (attacking) his little buddy
Hope you enjoyed Alphabe-Thursday
If you have a chance go check out what others came up with.

Of course, cats! Now why didn't I think of that??? I have six of them and it never once entered my mind.

Those felted cats are adorable. I've been working on a felted dog...my first attempt at felting.

Oh, oh, I love your felted cats! Those are soooo adorable! Can you e-mail me, Laurie. I won this adorable felted rabbit kit but I don't do that craft...if you'd like it I'd love to send it to someone who would enjoy it!

Your post made me smile!

A+

So what was the ultimate fate of the felted cats - they look in danger to me!

My name is PJ. said...

I adore felting and have featured a couple of posts with felted critters in the past.

Yours are adorable.

I love your cats, especially those adorable felted ones. I'd love to learn to make them :). I'm thinking that a real live cat would be a good addition to my household right now ... there is a rat that thinks it has found a nice winter home in my kitchen!

Sarah said...

I love you sweet little felt cats. So little were they hard to make? We have a orange cat looks like he could be a sibling of your daughters. And too cute of a name for the black cat. My Scottie is named Ladybug and we call her Bug.
