He was made from a pattern by Tennessee Ridge Primitives.
His body is made from coffee stained muslin which I've painted with black acrylic and sanded down for an 'olde' worn look, which was then rubbed with cinnamon. It is stuffed with polyester filling and also weighted with sand, so it does stand on it's own.
Eyes are sewn on buttons. Nose & mouth are hand stitched. Whiskers are coiled rusty wires.
I've wrapped a rusty wire collar around his neck with two rusty bells attached.
The cat's pocket is made from an old quilt that I've stained and hand sewn on. It is filled with Sweet Annie, cranberry Gypsy grass and coiled red and white pip berries.
