Several weeks ago, Puppy came in and told me he needed my help sewing his Halloween costume as he had ordered some material from E bay. Help= Mom doing the sewing. He said he wanted to go as Keyboard Cat. I had never heard of Keyboard Cat so he pull up a U tube video showing me a yellow tabby playing a keyboard. The box arrived with the material and when I saw it, I knew my old sewing machine could not be used on such thick Fur.
First we drew a pattern of his arms. Then I remeasured before I cut out the first arm. I used a blanket stitch to sew by hand to sew the costume and a back stitch to keep the material from raveling. The fingers on the paws were the hardest to do with all the turns. After I finished the first arm, I heard Mimi's comment in my head "That is awful thick material to turn." The arm was no problem, the hand was no problem and 4 fingers were no problem but that middle finger did not want to turn. I took a sharpie pen and pushed as hard as I could and it turned. Whew. Before I started on the second arm, I mortified the pattern before I cut and guess which finger I made bigger? I used a heavy rope and glued the fur on it for the tail and then came the ears. I do believe they were the hardest to make as they needed to be attached to a headband. I glued the inter ears on the fur ears. So now you know what I have been doing in my spare time the last couple of weeks. Making the cat fur fly.
The kitty justice is he will be the best dressed cat at the party.
