Kawaii Kitten

My daughter loves to draw.  It's a normal part of her every day.  When she showed me this simple kitten it just made sense to make it into a wall hanging.

We started by scanning and blowing up her original sketch.  The Small One chose fabric and I went to town using a combination of reverse applique and whole-cloth applique

After the major details were down my daughter drew all the smaller features back onto the face and I followed her lines with thread.

I like using a darning foot with a zig zag stitch while stitching left to right to make thick lines easily.

We are both very pleased with the result.


  1. Cute kitty! Great application of appliqué. I use triangle hanging corners , too!
