Monica Barker sent her late aunt’s fur jacket/cape from the 1960s and asked me to make two cats for her and her mother for Christmas this year. She specifically wanted Siamese cats, but I could not find a pattern specifically for that breed of cat and the coloring of the fur wasn’t really a good match. However, I think we ended up with some very pretty cats.
Erica had two of her late mother’s sun dresses. She contacted me wanting cats instead of bears. In an email exchange, I let her know what patterns I had available for cats. She chose an old primitive pattern with very whimsical cats. The fabric from the dresses was colorful wtih a tropic feel to it. Getting the colors to work well together was quite a challenge and made for four very bright, whimiscal cats full of character.
I just receved the cats. I absolutely LOVE them! They are quirky and have so much personality. My Mother would’ve loved them. I originally wanted to go with the Memory Bears, but noticed you had other pattern designs. I found one of the cat patterns and instantly fell in love. My Mom was a vivacious, kind-hearted, cat loving woman and these Memory Cats are the perfect tribute to her. My stepfather and sister will adore them. Thanks for making my Mother’s essence live on 🙂
Thank you, Erica
I do not do FB or I would definitely put a positive review on it for you. The cat is beautiful,,,.
The lady it is going to is a cancer Doctor and the fur was her mother’s who recently passed of cancer. A cancer Doctor who can’t save her own mother is a very depressing thing, she is not coping well, but we are not God and in time I hope she can cope better, my sister and I hope this cat will hold a lot of memories for her, she loves cats.
Can’t thank you enough. will refer you to friends and family, already have. Rebecca
Bear saw my “crazy cats” and wanted two made from a couple of shirts that belonged to her late mother. She also sent a picture of her mother with the note that she was a very special lady with a whimsical and loving personality who had been a career nurse and who also loved cats.
