kitten in mittens

This stuffed toy is a collaboration between Jeff and I. He drew the picture, I traced it onto a piece of fabric using the old tape-it-to-a-window trick. I then embroidered it, cut it out, sewed on a piece of backing fabric, then stuffed it. I used this same technique (if you could call it that) on the toy I made for the Alice in Wonderland-themed Month of Softies.

Embroidery is the bee's knees. And I can do it while I drink a beer, which I can't do while I'm knitting!

That is AWESOME! I love it! You have inspired me to do some embroidery - I too have had many booze related knitting mishaps.
