Stumpy the Cat!

Recently I ran across folk art and primitive animal patterns and I fell in love with the style because they were different, unusual! I was getting bored creating the same things and let's face it, jewelry, although beautiful, is a hard sell because so many people are making it. I knew that in 2009 I wanted to introduce some new lines... make some needed changes! I've decided I will make primitive/folk art critters and also my add my North Wood wee people series.

I had all good intention of making my next wee people set until I received the Primitives pattern that I had recently ordered. I vowed to give myself some time off after the Christmas rush and recharge/renew my creative energies........... but, I just kept staring at the Stumpy cat pattern and I just had to rip it open and drag out the sewing machine.

I think what I liked about it the best is that it also satisfied the "artistic" side of me. I got to get out my acrylics and fabric paints and bring this little fellow to life. I really had fun making this
fabric kitty. I am looking forward to making other folk art/primitive critters.

Stumpy Cat can be purchased from my new ArtFire store:
