Needle Case for Cat Lovers
When I woke up this morning, some words popped up in my head: a cat prototype. A CAT PROTOTYPE? Is it an inspiration? Is it a desire? I didn’t understand it but the words didn’t leave me for quite some time. OK, I thought, if you (the voice in my head) wanted a cat prototype, I’d give you one!
I made a simple, cat prototype-template (without even knowing what it was for) with a plastic sheet, then used it for wet felting. When I was about to add features on the face, another voice told me (yeah, I’m a bit special, innit?) that it has to be a ‘grumpy cat’.
So there you have it, inspired by the voices in my head, (a drum roll) a grumpy cat!
I still didn’t know what this prototype was for, though (can I even call it a prototype?).
It looks fun, but no.
A toner cosy? I don’t think so (although… it looks strangely cute).
But yes, an idea hit me, and the grumpy cat finally found its use: a needle case.
I sewed on a pair of snap buttons at the opening.
Ta-da! Now that I have a cat prototype, I think I should make more use of it. I’ll post a tutorial on how to make a cat pouch by wet felting technique soon so that you can have your very own grumpy cat :)
