Here’s Gertie, short for Gertrude. I got her name from the oxygen babynamer list of the day National Medal of Science Winners. She’s made of a felted merino wool sweater from the thrift store and she’s soo soft. Her head insert, nose and shoes are wool felt. Her eyes are suede and flea market buttons (same as for my other kitty in a dress).
It was so much fun to come up with a little outfit for her! Now I have all sorts of anthropomorphizing projects floating in my head! Next up is a bunny in pajamas for Oscar. (because we never bought him that Thelonius Monkey we had our eye on).
I don’t feel so sad about those tar-tan kitties now that I have my own kitty to play with. She’s fitting right in with the rest of the crew. Actually she’s rather take charge, here she is trying to edify the other stuffeds by reading them a book on manners.
