I felt like it was time to try out a new cat pattern, so the other day I experimented with “stripes.” the second of the two I made as demo models was this Full-Striped Quilled Cat. I had made a zig-zag striped Fat Cat this past winter and originally started out with that style in mind. I quickly realized that it didn’t look as good on these thinner-bodied cats.
My first striped cat was striped half-and-half. You can see the end result here. I felt like I had to see what it would look like if I tried making the stripes span the entire width, and this is what I came up with.
I definitely prefer the half-and-half version, though this is definitely cute. It just doesn’t look nearly as striking as the other one. I think that this one needs some tight coils along the edges to fill in gaps. I might do that today.
A woman purchased a custom Scrollwork cat last week and today I’m making one of those. If I have time, I’ll enhance this cutie. In the meanwhile, this demo model and the demo model of the half-and-half striped cat are both available on my Etsy shop.
