Fleecy cat pillow with iron-on face.

As you can see from the funky shape and skinny tail, I still need to work out a better cat pillow pattern using fleece. The asymmetrical ears are kinda cute, though.

I'm mainly showing you this guy because rather than using applique, I believe I've figured out a good iron-on approach for the face and paws. That way it can have my nice crispy black lines, and look that much more like my artwork. I think the zoomed in view of the face shows this nicely.

I still plan to make the cat bags and rectangular or square pillows using printable fabric, but it's nice to have a plushie option... especially since I'm going to two baby showers soon, and I want to make teddy bears or bunnies for the upcoming tater-tots. Alas, one of the moms has already requested that her kid's bear have non-pointy teeth! *siiigh*

Don't worry... most children with moms like that grow up craving The Pointy.

Personally I don't think the straight teeth make the expression any less scary... but yeah, I agree. :D

Probably just makes them look like they're wearing dentures of DOOM.
