Pussycat bag

I've been neglecting my craft work just lately, sorry to the people that look for my creations. I have just made this shopping bag which I am going to give to my friend Sue who has thirteen cats, I think she will like it. I thought I had used up all of the gazebo roof which I pulled out of a skip, but I found one last piece in my garage. A good scrub up with soapy water on the table in the garden, and it has come up like new.

The size is 13" tall, 11" wide, and 7" deep. I cut the cat shapes out of the vinyl from the Scrapstore and stitched them on by hand. I did try machining them on but it wouldn't feed the fabric through smoothly and the stitches kept getting smaller. I used blue embroidery thread to match the bag so it looks acceptable, in fact it gives it a home made look. Can't wait to give it to her, I am as excited about it as she hopefully will be.
