fat cat ~ tatted.



I tatted a fat cat.




Mainly, because I have a fat cat.



And because I thought the pattern was adorable.  You can find the cat pattern here





And the tatted border is from here.




I used a glue stick to adhere scrap fabric to foam-core. Then using that same glue stick, I adhered the tatted elements.  A little bit of yellow ric-rac hot glued to the outside edge...




...and I have a fat cat ~ tatted.

Just HAD to pop in to tell you that I just LOVE how your black and white tatted cat turned out. Very clever thing to do - using the two "colors" together. And I love the cat design.

Well done you!

That is so cool!
I have never tatted... I think it's time to conquer my fear of it and give it a shot! :-)

I'd like to invite you to link this (and any other projects you'd like) up on my first link party.
Your readers are welcome, as well!

Love seeing your creations! Is this regular tatting thread or did you use something thicker? I like how full it looks! Great job! :O)
