I find tremendous freedom playing with mediums in which I have no training. As I see it, I can't screw it up if I was never taught how to do it right! Sewing is one of those creative things that is tons of fun because I have no expectations of producing any award winning results.
Before getting underway, I had to get some ABBA jamming on the hi-fi, then it was time to sew. I quickly learned that sewing catnip filled toys in the same room with curious cats, who demand to assist, makes for quite the challenge!
Curious, Nahum, checking things out
The quality control inspector checks out the stitching
The finished product!
Can you tell I didn't restrict my creativity by using a pattern?!
Next up, the product testing phase...
Willow gives it the sniff-test...
then comes the bite test.
Theo gives it the kickeroo test. It passes.
The finished fishes won't win any beauty awards, but the kitties don't care, they love them and I had a good time! Now, I think I'll make a few more for the ferals to enjoy.
