I realise I haven't put the whiskers on my purple madcat!! I was so enjoying making it I just plain forgot. I shall do it this morning. This is made from pure wool and some synthetic yarn and has fibre filler. The bead is interesting because it has tiny seed beads on it and so has a good texture. I am not sure what the rest of the bead is made of. Metal, I think. I used some pretty ribbons I had to do the rest of the decorating . I really liek Purple Principles madcat. The camera hasn't really picked up the colours properly. I love the colours.
