It’s funny isn’t it how time can change things? A while ago I wrote this blog post where I was very unsure about my feelings towards making crochet cats. I’ve always been a dog person so making cute puppies was a natural thing for me to do, but cats? Hmmm.
Well, after discovering mohair and the joy of fluffiness I’m totally converted. So much so that the puppies have taken a back seat for now while I work on my litter of cute crochet kittens.
Here are my latest pair: Twinkle and Sparkle.
They’re made from fluffy mohair that has tiny sequins in the thread. What an irresistible combination of fluffy and sparkly. Add a bit of ‘bling’ and a flower and bow and I’m bowled over with the impact of the cuteness. Both kitties have enormous attention to detail, having whiskers, eyelids, curly tails and pink pads on the bottom of their cute paws and pink embroidered inside their ears. They are dinky in size, measuring just 9 inches from tip of the toes to the tip of the pointy ears.
Due to their handmade nature they are sold as collectibles only, suitable for careful ownership of an older child /adult. They do not withstand rough play. They are delicate kittens after all.
Here are some other pictures of the cute couple.
So , it’s official I’m a crochet cat lover. Now I’m rather addicted to sourcing mohair to make the rest of the litter.
