Pets on Quilts Show

Welcome to my second entry for the Pets on Quilts Show 2015
This is for the animal themed Cat-egory.  I had planned to use the Kitties in the Garden quilt as my entry, however I just have to show this instead. 
A few weeks ago  I posted the beginning of this project for the Vintage Lovers Swap on instagram.  My swap partner received her package yesterday so I can share the pictures. (I will share what I received in my awesome package later)  This is my Louis Wain inspired Cat tote.  It was incredibly fun to make.  The interior pockets are made from the same fabric used in the Kitties in the Garden quilt. I used part of a Stonehenge charm pack and dug into my scrap buckets to make the LW cat. 
Be sure to check out the other critters n quilts over at Lily Pads Quilting and leave some comment love- Snoodlz has a prize drawing for those who visit each entry and comment!

Hee hee - fun cat facts and jokes. I have to share that leopard joke. I have one for you:
What’s the difference between a cat and a comma?
One of them has the paws before the claws and the other is the opposite!

Oh wow, what a neat project. I have not heard of Louis Wain cats and will go investigate when I'm done here. Nice job on the tote!

My cat had a close call with the retail shop! All is well now but it took a shaving and a drain tube. Not a pretty sight. Your tote is adorable.
