Tabby Cat

You know why this cat looks so grumpy? I cut the whiskers off one side of the scan. Oops. They really are all still there on the bookmark. This one is for a friend who owns a tabby cat, so I thought she might like it. Like the snail, it is made from Lizbeth size 20 medium Harvest Orange, and a size 20 Omega orange variegate. It has a really long tassel tail. It can tease the cat while it hangs out the bottom of a book, right?

This is another from Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks: A Tatted Zoo. There's a lion in there too, but I don't think I'm going to make it. Too many picots! I think it would prob'ly shed.

I think the cat looks grumpy because he is hungry. Look how skinny he is!

This is such a great bookmark and I have made this one the most out of this book. Kids love when I make them this cat bookmark. Did you see the lion made from this bookmark?

I had to use the wayback machine to get the lionbookmark to show up.

Here is the link to her other patterns also using the wayback machine.
