Beaded Cat Pin & Small Business Grant Contest

This week, I finished working on a special custom order. One of the pins I made was a beaded orange & white cat named Butterscotch. He was made by stitching Japanese size 15 seed beads  and 13/o charlottes to felt. I layered the beads to create a furry texture. He measures approx. 5.5cm x 5.5cm. Do you like him? Please check my Facebook page to view more beaded cats & dogs:)
