Patchy Kitties!

Patchy kitties. They are made mostly from materials from different socks. I noticed that many people enquire about kitties past-made (and sold off) & unfortunately, I have not been able to get a hold of those socks anymore. LUCKILY, I do not have a habit of throwing away useful looking pieces of cloth/remnants/what-have-you. I kept them in the hopes that I would be able make a patchwork blanky. Kidding.

Bizzy. Made from 4 different remnants, with maroon jersey for the back of her head, underside & tail. She measures 31cm by 11cm & her head is 16cm across.
Adopted. I cannot make another Bizzy, as she was made without pattern & I do not have the exact same fabric anymore. I can make the general lying down kitty, but you'll have to trust me on the shape.

Giddy is also made up from 5 different materials (blue jersey used for his underside & back of head). Measures 26cm by 10cm; head is 18cm across.
Adopted. Like Bizzy, Giddy cannot be repeated to a 'T'.

Mizzy. She is made from 5 different types of materials (she has a brown & lime green underside, like the bellies of these bunnies here). She measures 36cm by 9cm & her head is 15cm across.

Dizzy & Tizzy (both below) are made from different pieces of socks that have been cut forgivingly, to retain their circular bodies. The hardest thing is to sew them neatly so that the stripes are aligned. Especially difficult for stretchy jersey materials. This involves a lot of tacking, so if you see any of this series with 'loose, visible' stitches, they are from my tacking. No undersides of different materials here!

Dizzy measures 40cm by 10cm by 11cm (that's his measurement across his head). You can tell I purposely hoarded materials from the same type of socks to make him!

Tizzy! She is my favourite of this lot! If somebody buys her, I'll be both happy & sad. Happy to have found her a new home, sad because I won't be able to see her anymore.
Tizzy has been adopted! She is in good hands now! I hope to make a similar Tizzy soon! :)

I have more on the way (& some have been reserved by some friends), but I wanted to share these fellows with everyone first!

  1. Bizzy, Giddy, Mizzy & Tizzy were all sent packing home during the Purrzaar in June 2011. Dizzy is still waiting to be adopted .
