I've seen some really cute, I mean scary black cats out there in Halloween decor this season and I decided I could make an applique pillow to add to my own stash of Halloween decs. I love the black cats with arched backs but I didn't want it too spooky. I found a cute drawing online in a children's printable coloring page and used that as my template. One evening of applique for the cat and the next day I added black borders to my square and a fun orange black cat print for the pillow back. I found an easy tutorial with a great idea for sewing the back at a blog called Sparkle Power - you might want to check out her tutorial here. She overlaps flaps so that its very simple to remove it. Love it!
