Sharks! New Handmade Pincushion Cats

I wanted to get some fun new pincushion cats ready for Shark Week. And I'd always wanted to make a cat in a shark costume, so figured this was the perfect time to do it!

So I came up with 3 new pincushions: Shark Cat, Shark Pig and Swimming Cat. All my felt pincushion are handmade by me and from my own patterns. They stand approximately 5.5 inches (14 cms) tall and measure approximately 11 inches (28 cms) around the bellies.

First up:Shark Cat! I had so much fun making this one! What's not to love about the silliness of this?
This brown cat is showing his ferocious shark side by wearing his gray shark costume complete with hood, big teeth, shark fin and tail.

Next: Shark Pig:
This pink pig is happy to be wearing his gray shark fin and blue iridescent ribbon collar.

And lastly: the Swimming Cat! This one might actually be my new favorite.
This white cat is celebrating summer by going for a refreshing swim with his yellow ducky inner tube, blue fins and snorkel (which is on a pin so can be removed if desired).

All these cat pincushions can be viewed or purchased in my Etsy shop: CLICK HERE
