Oval cat pillow.

Cat-shaped plushies are proving to be something of a challenge, since my printable fabric isn't stretchy at all. Plus they're a pain to stuff, thanks to the ears...

So, I'm hoping this oval pillow gets the vague cat-shape across without needing to be fancier than an oval. That way it can pull double duty as a pillow. What do you think?

Before stuffing, this was 12x16 inches. The back is black -- or is it better to have the back be a contrasting color of cat? If I print both sides, I can't have an opening across the back for the stuffing... so, I need a better way to stitch his gut shut somehow. Whipstitching by hand is a bit too irregular. Maybe a zipper foot? Hmmmmn.

*loves on evil kitty*

I like the contrasting color idea for the back. Looks like you're having some fun with this. ;)

Did they get your printer back to you in working condition?

No -- they couldn't fix it. BUT, they replaced the printer even though it was out of warranty. And sent $100 of free ink. WTF?

Not that I'm complaining. :D

So, now this weekend I can do a few way-overdue collab projects.

I like the contrast of color. I like the shape of the cat.
