Diva Katz – On Sale

~~~Links to each collection can be found at the bottom of this page~~~

I’ve been wanting some long tall kitties for a long time. When I ran across this artwork I knew these were it.

These will be great in so many projects. I wanted mine on my tops and tunics. But a quilted banner with all three on the bottom (w/o the lettering) and Cat Lady in the top comes to mind. Includes a Cat Lady Bonus*

Diva Katz Trio Design – 11 inches tall including their head gear

Because I wanted these on some very lightweight cotton jersey tunics, I used organza for the applique fabric and 1 lightweight cotton floral print. Almost all of the embroidery is located on the applique fabric with very little on the knit fabric itself. Therefore, I decided to use water soluble stabilizer on top and bottom instead of the usual cut away on the back.

The appliques turned out very soft and drape with the fabric. I thought I would need to add a layer of light weight fusible to the backside to keep the embroidery threads from scratching me but nope, didn’t scratch me. Maybe because of the very fine embroidery bobbin thread I use?

Available in 4 Collections – All On Sale

3 collections – all different designs plus an ‘Everything Collection’ that has all of them

*Included in all sets is the BONUS ‘Cat Lady’ design – just in case you want to make a cat lady quilt banner to go with the Katz.
