Mr Stilton + Cat Beanbag and Blanket

A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to be adopted by a kitten. The story of how it came about is a bit complicated but let's just say that it wasn't the first time that he'd paid us a visit and I don't think I could have made him leave even if I'd tried/wanted to.

I'm loving having him around especially when R is at school. He's such a funny wee character and he absolutely adores R. It melts my heart seeing them together and R is over the moon at finally having a pet.

With an extra family member comes extra sewing opportunities! Stilton has taken quite a liking to R's beanbag so I decided to make him one of his own as well as a little blanket to go with it. I get the feeling that he's going to be one spoilt cat.

I made the bean bag out of some cotton drill that I had in my stash. It was very easy to make and I love how it turned out. It would be great for babies/toddlers too.

I adore the cat fabric that I used for the front of the blanket and it matches perfectly with the spots. I backed it with black fleece so it's nice and snuggly.

They've both been given Stilton's seal of approval.
