I wasn’t sure the design would fit when I bought these, but she fit so well it was meant to be.
I found sets of these white cotton accessory bags on clearance—a good price for me to experiment with. This is the largest bag, 8.5″ x 5.5″, the other two are smaller and smaller yet and because this design won’t fit on those I have different plans.
I chose the two most popular kitty colors to stencil these, Housepanther, the original Bella! and Ginger Kitty. The bags are a sturdy 7 oz. cotton, enough that the fabric stencil ink didn’t bleed through. They zip across the top.
As I’d shared on Instagram and Facebook last Saturday, Mimi was threatening to step on my wet stencils if we didn’t go outside.
She rarely follows through with her threats, but you can see a little blip of orange above the ginger kitty’s shoulder area, so I said she’d “pawsonalized” this one. Friends said I should charge more for that one for Mimi’s work, but really it’s the same price as the housepanther model.
If these are popular I’ll print more in all the colors. If I print on these later it will be much easier to make them myself, unless I find a really big clearance. I guess we’ll see!
