"No?" said Coraline.
"No," said the cat. "Now, you people have names. That's because you don't know who you are. We know who we are, so we don't need names."
Coraline by Neil Gaiman c. 2002
The cat is finished as well. A much easier project than Coraline! I was worried Ivy might want a doll of her own, so was quite relieved when she asked for Cat.
Cat is made from black felt, with embroidered eyes and nose. He is sort of posable--his legs are thread jointed, which is sort of like button jointed without the buttons, which makes for a looser joint which works with this toy. He is about 8 inches from the tip of his ear to his toes. Coraline measures about 15 inches tall.
I feel as though my toymaking has taken a creative direction that I'm really enjoying. I'm considering focusing less on making clothing and more on this sort of thing.
