Inspired by Hanna

I happen to stumble upon Hanna’s blog, and I’m sure glad I did.  She is full of ideas and encouragement to try new things and not be afraid to make mistakes.  Her book  A Creative Year is a joy to read.  I was debating on buying it because it is not cheap but it is all worth it, an early Christmas present to my self.


One of Hanna’s passion is creating what she calls “softies” most often times made from materials that she “thrifted”.


Inspired by her love of making softies, I made an origami cat, kind of the color of Hanna’s cat Smilla.  I can almost say that this free form origami because there was no pattern.  This is my first attempt at a cat and I’m sure I will do better next time.


I think I should have made her ears more pointy.  I filled her body with rice and fiberfill, the rice made her sit without turning over.  After, I crocheted her tail I inserted craft wire to make her tail poseable.


My little “softie” cat looks just like she is going places inside this energy drink recycled gift bag with paper beads handle.


I hope somebody from somewhere inspired you today.
