Maggie the rag-cat

It's been much too long since I finished a Rag Pet, so I'm pleased to introduce to you Maggie the rag-cat, who had been in progress for a while now, patiently waiting to be clothed.

Maggie & a sunny afternoon

Maggie likes slow afternoons when she can just listen to music and read and just relax for a bit. Sundays are her favourite, especially when the weather is nice and she can go outside to simply sit in a park and enjoy the day her way.

Maggie the rag-cat

Maggie is made from fun nobbly, toffee coloured wool and she's stuffed with rags and polyfill. She has safety eyes, an embroidered nose, blushy cheeks and a plastic button for a bellybutton.
Maggie is wearing a black and grey stripy tricot long sleeved T-shirt with pleats on the front that closes in back with a snap and a yellow and white polka-dotted skirt that also closes with a snap in the back. Maggie's skirt fabric was actually the wrapping for some other fabric I bought from Tokyo Textiles. Then, serendipitously, in the jumble of my fabrics, I happened to have the stripy jersey of Maggie's top next to it, and I thought that they'd make a really super outfit together, and thus, the idea for Maggie was born!

Maggie the rag-cat is available in the Rag Pet Shop, should you want to spend your lazy afternoons in her stellar company. :)

I really like her knobbly wool and the stripe too.
