Sshhhh…. there’s a cat in our summer house. Don’t tell Ben. I wonder if she’ll turn around …..
All the way around?
What an elegant cat!
A cat called Alice!
Alice the Elegant Cat is the first pattern for the March issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine. I have felt for a long time that there was a large, feline-shaped gap in the Bustle & Sew collection of softies, but as I have never owned a cat I wasn’t quite sure how to begin. And then I had an idea – at the end of our village is an upmarket hotel, whose resident cat is extremely snooty. He (or she, I don’t know) is a slender, elongated brown feline who loves to perch on the hotel gate post and hiss at Ben as we pass by. So Alice (who is much nicer and more friendly) reflects this elegant pose, tail curled around paws, exactly.
She measures about 12″ tall and has a nice round beach pebble in her base so she stands up nicely. Hope you like her!
