I just finished "Catarina"! She's my new beautiful Maine Coon Cat
, with tufted ears and big yellow oval eyes. Catarina is wearing her favorite calico dress, the one with the red rosette that compliments her cute red nose. Her favorite pull toy is Harold, the purple giraffe. Harold has wheels so he can go with her everywhere.
Catarina is a one-of-a-kind original work of art. I created her from my own design and patterns. She is made from 100% cotton fabric which is sewn, stuffed, and painted with acrylic paint. I sculpted the front of her face from Paperclay
, which I smoothed into the fabric. I threaded her wily whiskers through the clay before it dried.
Catarina's arms are button-jointed, so she can be easily posed, and her striped tail supports her so she can sit up all by herself. She has cotton lace around the neck of her dress and around her wrists.
Harold is hand painted with acrylic paint as well. Both Catarina and Harold are sealed with matte varnish for protection.
