canvas cat necklace

canvas cat necklace

These cat necklaces are one of the quickest and most satisfying projects I’ve made in a while. I made up a few of them before the Patchwork show in May, and I’m selling them on etsy now, too!

They’re just canvas, marker and some simple stitching.

I used a air soluble pen to draw the cat head shapes on canvas, and then sewed two layers of canvas together using the pen as a guide. Then just draw your faces on each side and add a nice chain. Pretty simple. 😀

I like that they’re so lightweight too – it’s not a good thing when there’s lot of wind, but if you’re inside you can’t really tell you’re wearing anything.

Patchwork is only a few days away! I actually took today and tomorrow off work to get going on MOAR STUFF. Right now I have 22 embroideries in hoops, and I have not yet counted the flat ones. Once I laid them out I started worrying it was not enough.

Also pictured: nine nearly completed needlebooks. They are in serious need of some buttons.

I need to make golden snitches, more lego jewelry, and maybe some chapstick too! I have two pounds of beeswax that needs to be used at some point, and this is as good a time as any. 😀

And now I need to go fight with my ironing board and finish more flat embroideries. Yeehaw!
