Halloween Cats

 Halloween Fun with Cats!

I recently found some patterns, with cats, and knew these would be fun to make for Halloween!

The first project - a Patchsmith Mug Rug called " Moonlit Cat"-

(Do  you see the cat on this cover of  The Patchsmith's book of 10 Halloween and Thanksgiving Mug Rugs? )

Pattern here

My daughter, who has a gray cat named Fritz ( or the little Prince, as I like to call him!), requested that I make her this mug rug, and make the  cat gray in color.
I pulled out some dark blue fabric, for the night sky, and some gold for the big ol' moon.  I got out random red pieces of scraps for the wall.  And I had some scrap Brussels Washer Linen for the body of the cat.

The back side of the mug rug.   I like to use the "back as binding" when I can on a mug rug to keep it flat.

Note:  There's a second black cat applique design included as a bonus in this Patchsmith Halloween/Thanksgiving Mug Rug book!

The second project-  a little stuffed cat called "Scooter Pie"    by Bunny Hill Petite Patterns  (here)

My daughter asked me to make her this  sweet little stuffed cat , in a  Beatrix Potter toile fabric that she found this summer.

The fabric -the 3 Little Kittens and Peter Rabbit

They are a fun little size , of 6 " x 7 ",   and don't take long to make.  I use chop sticks to get the polyfil stuffing moved into the spaces. 

Well,   you know what I "just had " to make next....

These were shipped out to my daughter as a surprise :)

Ok, what do you think I did next?

( I couldn't "not" make this one for my sweet little Whiskers....)

And since it is nearly Halloween....

Hmmm.... where did YOU come from?

They are a cute addition to my handmade Halloween  decorations.

I want to make a Moonlit Cat mug rug for myself soon, too!

I'm off to my sewing room!

I have a feeling my Whisker Pie
 will be staying out year-round!


  1. Oh Susie-- I love your Halloween cat post! Love how cute they all are and the festive colors and the little fish skeletons are pretty cute too. Thanks for the link to the Scooter pie pattern and the lovely post..

  2. The kitties are so sweet and the mug rug looks fabulous!! Perfect doppelgänger for Fritz and Whiskers!


  3. I love them all Susie! That mug rug is adorable and I love the little stuffed cats you made - especially the mini-Fritz and mini-Whiskers ones!
