A feline twist on the fabric pumpkin...

I splurged on the latest issue of Matthew Mead's Halloween magazine.
Ever since I saw his black cat fabric pumpkin in this publication, I've been obsessed with making one.  
My mother (the artist/seamstress of the family) then surprised my sister and I with our very own fabric pumpkin felines when we were together on Sunday.   The button for the nose was taken from my grandmother's sacred button box. The eyes and whiskers were carefully painted with fabric paint.
Isn't she fabulous?
When our newest Halloween kitty isn't our master bed, she's been known to hangout with Luna.
Or, keep company with Penny.
Thank you, Mom!!

Oh he is so cool! I can see why you admired him! I can't believe how much we have in common as we have sacred family can of buttons too! It's so special I devoted a whole post to it a year or two ago! God bless your mom for making you & your Sis such a special thing! Matthew mead has good stuff but Martha is still the ultimate!

Such a nice Mom! Your new kitty is adorable(and easier to take care of). I might have to show my mom this or maybe I can figure it out myself.
