Meet Tiggy :: A Finish

The first Halloween fabric arrived in my shop last week. I got Spooky Delights by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda. Along with the fabric I got a couple of patterns. This adorable kitty is one of them.

She was fun to make and not very hard. I tried out cotton stuffing from Quilter's Dream inside her along with some crushed walnuts shells for weight. Both worked great! 

I've only used polyester stuffing previously. The cotton stuffing is similar, but I found it easier to manipulate. Usually my stuffed items are pretty lumpy, but this project turned out much smoother. I don't know if I'm just getting better at stuffing things or if the cotton stuffing helped, probably both. 

I want to make the pumpkin too, but didn't get around to it yet.
