I have a lot of leftover wool. I have always knitted and crocheted so I am always looking for ways to use up the wool or yarn. Sometimes that is easy because I can knit or crochet a colourful jacket or blanket. There are still lots of bits of yarn and wool left over. One rainy afternoon I was sitting there with the bag of bits wondering what I could do with them. Not another blanket! I decided I'd try and make a cat. A mad cat. Something different and funny. This is it. I loved it when I saw her and so did everyone else. I got some good feedback and encouragement .People shared ideas so then I was confident to experiment and make more. They have made people laugh, cheered them up and have been very popular. My original madcat has found her home in my design studio and watches over as I create my projects.
She just makes me smile.These madcats are a great way for me to use up all my buttons, braids, ribbons and other bits and pieces I have collected. They are an exercise in upcycling as well as creativity.
