Cat Gets A Tuffet...

...and all she can do is give me the stink eye!
Completely ungrateful. She doesn't even like her little fish. The tuffet replaces a old pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt covered in cat hair that used to be stuffed into her bed. Guess it had gotten comfortable for her.

The whole set is from Bend the Rules, of course. I am sticking to my promise and systematically going through the book with all the projects that I like but I have to admit that I'm getting a little burnt out. That said, this one involved putting in a zipper in a new way (for me) that I really like. And, I'm going to use it for my upcoming pillows, so that is good. I have to say, it's not that I'm not learning new stuff...I'm just getting the itch to create stuff on my own. But, that is exactly how I ended up putting in zippers in the most awkward way possible until now. Harumph.

Speaking of pillows. I attempted to make a little something with cording and it was a DISASTER. So, I'm going to make them simple but embellish with embroidery and take my time...another thing I'm not so good at. These puppies are going to be well-loved before they are showcased, no exceptions.

That tuffet is adorable! not to mention the fish! You should create an Etsy shop and sell this stuff (unless you already have one in your links and I am too unobservant to see). Also this post title is possibly the best ever title.

Thanks! No etsy shop, have to admit most of what I make isn't an original. But, it's a very generous compliment.
