The making:


Ming-Yi drew the cat on tracing paper.

I brought the canvas back and matched it with cloth from our stash to do the window and frame.

mini-P6160024 mini-P6160025

I chose blue shades since it matches well with black.


Then, the canvas went back to mum for her to do the black cat.


It's done! And the ear is notched. The cat is neutered!


And mum did this stencil on tracing paper for the back.


Here's the back!

Now, the finished bag...
