Candy Cane Cats~

For the past 20 years or so I've been making candy cane mice to pass out at Christmas time... this year I came across a pattern for candy cane cats. Of course I had to give them a try.... very cute indeed! I glued on the wiggley eyes, a felt triangle nose, the red ribbon/bow and the bell. The mouth and wiskers I used two strands of embroidery floss and just winged it as I went along.Here is the pattern I used if your wanting to give it a try. The two slits are for feeding the ears through which will hold the end of the candy cane. Don't cut them to big-- smaller/tighter is better (in my opinion)I used a sticky backed mailing label which I printed "Merry Christmas" on to help hold the candy cane in place so the cats tail wouldn't move. Super easy-peasy project~
