Description

This is a gift for a friend who has a "grumpy cat". The pattern is by Sew What Sherlock entitled Grouchy Kitty (the tutorial link below is to purchase the pattern - it is not a free tutorial). My friend's kitten is gray and white so I tried to choose fabrics that mimic her cat's colors. The background fabric I chose was too close to the ear color so I hand-quilted around the inside of the ears. I liked the look of that so decided to do the same for the rings around the eyes. I couldn't come up with any other quilting I thought would look good and not cover up the hand-stitching so I decided not to do any other quilting. I'm excited to be giving it to her next Thursday.

The back includes a hidden zipper, courtesy of Wendy's tutorial

True Thanks Mary. She and her husband are young enough to enjoy the reference to the internet meme so I think she'll like it.
