Komaneko cat animation

Yesterday afternoon Sarah & I went to see a brilliant film called 'Komaneko' about a film making cat! Apparently this is from a Japanese TV series and the film was shown at No 8 in Pershore as part of The Travelling Picture Show tour of the West Midlands.
The story entails Komaneko making an animation with handmade creatures which inspired me to make my own version of a fabric kitty!

Last night I spent a couple of hours sewing my 'Komaneko' as I've christened her....sewing is not really my thing but I was driven to finish her. I've used a couple of old buttons from my Gran's old tin & the cat fabric is a piece of felted packing blanket.

Over the weekend I'll attempt to make a dress from my old 70's orange & brown flowery curtain fabric....?
