Big Crazy Cats Applique
I love cats (and dogs) but I don’t usually digitize them. I simply enjoy their company, playing with them, and of course combing and petting. However, I couldn’t resist this artwork. I decided I would make them BIG! After all, big is good, right? Wouldn’t it be cool to put them on a dress – a Bohemian look? Again, I couldn’t resist. I am not at all disappointed with the outcome and can’t wait to wear it. Because of the calico patchwork motif, I’ve taken to calling them Cali and Cal , my calico cat couple, but the embroidery set is simply known as my Big Crazy Cats.
I’m especially happy with the eyes. They are the first eyes I have ever digitized – thanks in part to great artwork.
The set is actually two separate designs, one for the 6×10 hoop and the other for the 5×7 hoop, with the finished projects measuring 22×21 inches and 18×17 inches, respectively.
There is no design alignment within the hoop used
