My mom made these wall hangings for me when I was a kid. They were made from old fabric scraps she had laying around. When I got to old for them they got put away and almost forgotten about. Until now, I came across them when I was digging around for some baby clothes at moms house and thought they would be great to decorate the playroom for a little girl obsessed by cats. Instead of saying miau like a word the kid actually miaus like a cat. Its pretty cute. She mever says the word Grandma without adding a miau (grandma has a cat) And the first name she learned except for mom , dad and so on was Zinda. Yep that would be the cat. So you can imagine her excitement to see these colorful kitty’s on the wall. It was a big hit.
I must have loved them a lot as a kid to because they were in some disrepair and were missing a lot of buttons. But a quick wash and iron followed by a dive in the extra button bucket and they are good as new. Or at least almost.
It is kind of fun to look at these fabric pieces and remember the clothing they came from. The girl below is wearing a piece of a floor length evening gown my mom made for herself. It was fabulous and I wish we still had it around. The blue is from some overalls that my brothers had. They had bell bottoms and full length arm zipper front and a collar of cause. Ahh the 70ts.
