DinkyThe Cat

Dinky the cat is a design by Erin Holloway  and taught at Palmetto Tat days in 2012.  Once again it was taught at Camp Wanna Tat in October of 2019. 

I gave the Dinky some tufts of hair at the top.  We used a unique technique to make those legs. I also used CWJ to keep the spine neat as I joined all those rings.

You may find it a challenge to find those marquise beads with holes in each end for the eyes but bugle beads or small shirt buttons would work too. I used 4mm bicone beads for the feet. 

This was a fun pattern to make and can easily be finished in a few hours.

  5. Those eyes remind me of the glasses that were in fashion around 1960. Nice thrown chains. (I think)
