Halloween Costume: Doris the Cat

Doris is our cat. Anastasia wanted to be her for Halloween, so I got out some wool roving, cut up a thrifted wool sweater that I had already felted in the wash, and finally bought the felting needles that I have been wanting. Here is the final result of my felting fun!

Being the perfectionist that I am, I had to complete the look with a treat bag fit for a cat. I sewed together empty cat treat bags (more difficult than I anticipated) and attached strapping for handles.


  1. Wow! That is an absolutely wonderful costume! I really like the mask, and the "kitty treat" bag is the perfect finishing touch. Great Work!

  2. You've inspired me to request a sewing machine for Christmas!
