Cat print purse

I actually made this way back in December - it was part of my nan's christmas present - but I completely forgot to post about it. Anyhoo, here it is. The cat print was created from an afternoon of potato printing - I can't recommend this enough, hours of fun - and then I used some colourful threads to fill in the gaps with very simple embroidery (so simple in fact, I don't think it even counts as embroidery). A couple of the cats got some sticthed whiskers before I made it up into a purse. I had intended it to be a coin purse but, as you can see, it's a little on the large side (truthfully, I couldn't bear to cut through the cat faces). It's lined with plain black fabric and features my attempt at an inner pocket (which was not particularly successful, see above, but oh well, my nan didn't seem to mind). I'm definitely going to have another go at printing but I'm not sure what just yet...

Back to the present, it's a horribly grey day today and I'm feeling quite demotivated. The job search slog continues with ziltch results thus far. Sigh. Some tea and a slice of toast should hopefully perk me up a bit. Hope you're all having fun Wednesdays wherever you are :)


  1. Holy crap! This is super adorable!!

  2. the cat print was so cute! It looked like you - you know what I mean :)

  3. This looks so awesome! I especially love the embroidered whiskers. And boo to no luck with the job hunt - I'll keep fingers crossed for you.

    1. Ah, thanks Janet. I'm feeling a lot more positive today, some days are just better than others. Ah the ups and downs of job searching!

  4. I love this! I don't think I have potato printed since I was young. Totally need to remedy that. Hope the job hunt goes better soon - just have to trust that the right one is on the way! x
