Cool Cat Pajama Bags, Quilted Kitties go Wild

I have collected animal prints for a long time, I have made a few things with them including Snappy Slippers & Travel Bag, but still have lots of these fabrics.  So, I decided to make a couple of Cool Cat Pajma Bags.  They turned out very cute, quite wild!  Here are some photos for you.  This is the newest pattern from Cool Cat Creations, it is a pajama bag and has a zippered pocket in the back that can hold the jammies.  The cats are big, they are 24 1/2" long from the top of their head to the heel and sit up nicely, they look great sitting on a bed.
The quilt pattern in the photos is my Easy Peasy quilt, pattern also by Cool Cat Creations.

Quilted Cool Cat Pajama Bag Pattern
My newest pattern is for a pajama bag, something that has not been around for a long time.  I had one when I was a child, well into my teens!  I loved it, a dog that layed on his belly and held the jammies until the evening when I got ready for bed.
Well, since I am getting a little grand daughter this fall, I was thinking about my pajama bag and thought it was time to bring them back!  Well, you know I like cats, so Cool Cat Pajama Bag was born!  They are fun to make and can be made to match any quilt that you make, a bonus gift!
My twin nieces are both expecting soon as well as my daughter, so I did make them the matching baby quilts and Cool Cat Pajama Bags.  The quilt pattern is one of my newest patterns called Shadow Dance.  
My patterns are now available as pdf's on Craftsy.  http://www.craftsy.com/user/49951/pattern-store?_ct=fqjjuhd-lyum-qbb-fqjjuhdi-ro-tuiywduh&_ctp=169733,49951
Hope you like my new kitties!

New Quilt Pattern from Cool Cat Creations.

This is my newest design, a quilt.  I made this quilt for Christmas this year for my daughter, Andrea.  So, I decided to name the pattern Andrea's Quilt.  The instructions call for fat quarters and has instructions for all sizes from lap to king.  More about the matching slippers in a future post.
Andrea was just thrilled with her quilt, she is a little afraid that her cat will mess it up.  So, I will be making a small cat quilt for her to lay on top of her quilt so the cat will have her own little quilt.  The pattern will be available next week on craftsy as a pdf version and etsy as paper and pdf versions.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/CoolCatCreationQuilt?ref=hdr_shop_menu

Quilted Snappy Slippers for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It is breast cancer awareness month so I decided to make these Snappy Slippers in breast cancer fabrics.  I will give them to a group doing a breast cancer fund raiser.  I did not make the matching bag yet, but I probably will.
The breast cancer fabrics are very pretty, I even made some of my Heirloom Ornaments in them.  These slippers would be  a nice gift for someone going through treatments.
Remember everyone out there, do self exams and get a mammogram!  You can get the patterns for the Snappy Slippers & Travel Bag and the Heirloom Ornament from the following link.  The Heirloom Ornament is now on Craftsy, and the Snappy Slipper pattern will be there soon.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/CoolCatCreationQuilt?ref=hdr_shop_menu

These bags are fun, fast and easy to make!  The bag is made using 1 charm pack, how fun is that?  Everyone has charm packs, or bali snaps they have collected.  This bag would make a great bag to carry to the beach this summer, or a great gift to make for Mother's Day.

Peace on Earth

Here is the wall hanging that I made for my Vet's office.  I used my Peace on Earth pattern, but left out the words and added a black cat.  There is a big black cat in the office that always comes out to greet me, and he was friends with Milo, my rescue kitten that I adopted from them.  I was able to find lots of great related fabrics in my stash, including the red paw print fabric for Santa and the dog bone print in the small border.  The pattern can be found on my etsy site.https://www.etsy.com/shop/coolcatsandquilts?ref=hdr_shop_menu

Frozen - Quilted Slippers and Tote Bag, Jack & Jill Slippers & Tote Bag

Frozen seems to be all the rage these days, so I decided to make some Frozen themed Jack & Jill Slippers and Tote Bags.  Well, seems Frozen fabrics are a little hard to come by, but I was able to find Frozen themed ribbons.  It just so happens that I, like so many other quilters have a vast inventory of fabrics.  I was able to put together some fabrics that I do think go nicely with the ribbons, one in blues and one in pinks.  I will be giving them to my little nieces, hope they like them!  The pattern has both this style, the girl's, and a boy's style of slipper and the tote bag.  The pattern has full sized templates for both styles and all sizes from child 5 - 13 and youth 1 - 4.  The pattern can be found on my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/coolcatsandquilts?ref=hdr_shop_menu

Quilted Slippers for Men, Papa Bear Slippers & Travel Bag from Cool Cat Creations

Here is the newest slipper pattern, Papa Bear Slippers & Travel Bag.  These slippers are for the man in your life, your husband, brother, son, or just a friend.  The pattern has full-sized templates for men's sizes 7-14.  The slippers have removable insoles and a slipper gripper fabric on the bottom.
The men's and the lady's slippers are made using a foam interfacing as the foundation, and the foam interfacing in the insoles as well.  This makes them a little thicker, but very light weight.  The foam is easy to use and sews up fantastic.
The bag can be used to carry the slippers in, or can be used as a shaving kit.  The pattern is designed to use a Bali Pop, or Jelly Roll.  You can get 2 or 3 sets from 1 roll, depending on what size you are making.  For those that do not have a pre-cut, you can use scrap strips.
This pattern is available for all quilt shops, just check with your local quilt shop to see if they have it, or will bring it in.  If not, here is a link to my site where you can purchase any of my patterns.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/coolcatsandquilts?ref=pr_shop_more
