I found a blog recently by a lady named Care called "Obsessively Stitching" that is totally inspiring. Last week she posted about making the Sleepy Kittens from the movie "Despicable Me". That movie was nuts and the kitten book was a beam of cuteness in the middle of movie strangeness. When the tutorial came up today I HAD to make a Sleepy Kitten.
I had felt on hand instead of fleece and I hand stitched the kitty. The technique of stitching on the pattern and then cutting away excess is totally new to me. I can think of some ways to use it for elaborate patterns on a toy or for tiny facial features like this. Thanks so much for posting this tutorial, Obsessively Stitching!
