I have been looking at Becky's Blog artofzinkibaru she has a delightful book she has painted with the story of two cats going on holiday to France and wait for it the cats are gay. I was so taken by Becky's painting of the cats I had to start making them.
This is how they came to life.
I first made a pattern cut it out in a course calico sewed up and stuffed them forgot to take that photo.
The first one I taped up and painted the blue and red stripes but when I took the tape off they didn't always come together. I dont seem to be able to think things through from the start but learn as I go along.
