a keyfob of a cat in traditional dutch dress made of shrinky dink
Because i would like to send two of my friends a really dutch crafting present i thought of making this pussycat.
I found this pussycat in my new pussycat deluxe agenda and i was drawing her and thought this will be a nice gift for them.
I saw there were pussycat in other country traditional dress outfits as well so you can make your own country cat.LOL I have add the links of some pictures of pussycat in other tradional dresses from other countries, so you can use them, they are on the last step to find.
and because sheila got one too, i thought it would be swell for her that the cat has a wiggling tail, like her dogbag has , one of her awesome projects!!!!
hope you like it.
and make one your self it's a great nice easy to make quick gift;-D
