Billy the Cat

Billy the Cat is the beloved pet of the Reid family and Mum Helen requested a custom applique design of Billy on a pink toddler top for their daughter. Helen sent me a photo of Billy (who is apparently very hard to capture!) which I used to get the details of my design just right.

I used fluffy white fabric for Billy’s pear-shaped nose and cheeks and for inside his ears. I found a tiny scrap of deep pink spotty fabric to use for his nose and added an authentic black smudge too! For his whiskers I re-threaded my sewing machine with white cotton and used freemotion embroidery to add the finishing touches……
