The "I Love Cats or Dogs Swap" is just winding down on Craftster, and I made this cute little zippered pouch for my partner. She has two black cats, and she loves things that are kawaii, so I immediately thought of Hello Kitty's friend, Chococat!
I make the Chococat patch by printing an image from the computer, cutting it out and tracing the different parts onto wool felt. I hand-sewed all of the parts of the cat, then machine-sewed the patch onto the front panel before assembling the pouch.
My partner's favorite colors are hot pink and turquoise (hey, me too!) so I gave the pouch a turquoise lining.
I finished it off with a kitty charm for a zipper pull. My partner loves it! On Wednesday I'll show you the dog-related items I made for her (yes, she loves dogs too!)
