Two posts one day

I made this cat pillow for a friend who loves animal prints and has a little girl kitty. I've had this faux fur fabric laying around and couldn't figure out what to do with it. I used a black velvet jumper/dress thing I bought at the thrift shop for a couple of dollars and used the stuffing from two old pillows. I love reusing old stuff! This picture shows my kitty Furrgus "testing out" the new pillow and Finnegan is keeping an eye on him!

I've seen some cute hand embroidery projects on different blogs lately and wanted to try my hand at it. I found some tutorials and patterns (can't for the life of me remember where!) and here are a couple of my first attempts:

I think they are cute and will look cute hanging in the kitchen(s) (I sent them out to friends).
