Mice to Go with Those Cats / Beauties Pageant 18

What’s cuter than a Cargo Duffle Bag that’s covered in cat faces?

A Cargo Duffle Bag that’s covered in cat faces and accompanied by a coordinating pouch adorned with silly mice.

Today’s finish is an addendum to yesterday’s project. It’s a pouch I have made before. You can read the specifics, including how I transform pouches like this one into toiletry bags, here.

There’s not much more to say about these mice, other than a little part of me died inside when I took a rotary blade to them. I have just scraps of these brown mice left. The fact that the same print can be found in both peach and mint in my stash doesn’t lessen the blow.

What’s the precious fabric in your stash? (Obviously, my heart belongs to Lizzy House’s long out-of-print Catnap line!) And how are things on your sewing table? Please share any recent finishes with us in this week’s pageant ...

The pageant rules are simple:
  • Post your finish in the linky tool. (No links to your own giveaway or linky, please!)
  • Point your readers back here with a text link or use the button above.

  1. That was a really cute line of fabric. I understand your reticence to use it up!! I have no finish for this week so I had to come hop over and live vicariously through yours. :-)

  2. Always loved that fabric! I have a piece of the white and gray - I think I just used the last of it. Sigh.

  3. Those mice are adorable. It's hard to cut into favourite fabrics.

  4. Oh, I do love that print and they look great sewed up into the pouch!

  5. What a beautiful addition!

    I try to use the fabrics and remember that there will always be nice new lines and foremost that they are supposed to be used. But it is sometimes harder. I have a few favorites in my Alison Glass stash... :)
