Introduction: Customized Cat Face Purse
Runner Up in the
Hot Glue Challenge
What you'll need
Colored felt (matching your cats colors) (I used black, white, and tan)
Printer and computer
Your base purse is 1 sheet of regular felt folded in half (we'llcome back to that later)
Take a face photo of your model (mine is Jack)
Email it and print it out large enough for your purse size
Cut the face photo out
Take your base felt and draw an outline around the picture
Cut the base color out
Sorry the photos are sideways!
Take the overlay color and trace it (since my cat is black and white this makes it easier, if you have a calico cat it will be a bit tougher
Then "guesstimate" and trace the pattern of your cats face (for example my cat has a black nose, chin, a "mini" nose piercing and mask,
Cut those out and overlay
Make cat "cheeks" to underlay the nose, these are just smaller circles cut out from Looking at the picture
Now it's time to glue everything together!
You can add eyes, but it thought it made it look creepy.
I also added a nose bridge
Now glue the sides together (I used a pen to keep from burning my fingers)
Glue the base to the purse
The overlay into the base
And then the eyes (optional)
I also added his name for more of a "personal" touch
Glue anything else down,
Also, you can add a zipper if this is a traveling pocket, but I kept it as an open clutch
Let your cat approve :-)
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
