PS. Can anyone please tell me should I write "on the picture" or "in the picture" :)?


I sew smile and eyes first, then chicks. I ended up sewing the bigger one higher and smaller one lower, but it's really your choice.

I think the cat is the ugliest of my coasters collection, which (as always) means I like him the most :) I don't know if it is showing on the pictures, but he have a kind of creepy charm like the Cheshire Cat.
