It’s Wednesday, and Wednesdays call for cuteness. Lexy here, and to get us over the mid-week hump, we thought it might be a good idea to pay tribute to the furry friends who keep us company during our many (we wish) hours of sewing. The ladies here at Tilly and the Buttons are all confirmed cat lovers, but that’s not to say that any kind of furry company isn’t most welcome when we’re measuring, cutting, and stitching. Here are a few of your gorgeous pets that have “helped” during sewing, or assisted when it comes to modelling your Tilly and the Buttons creations!
Rona is a gorgeous sewing companion who lives with Abi, who very kindly shared her gorgeous sewing space with us last week. Check it out if you haven’t done so already. As if we weren’t already envious enough of Abi’s fantastic space, she gets to sew with Rona next to her everyday.
Back in February of 2016, Katie shared her peaceful sewing room with us, and we LOVED the addition of sleeping cats. Here’s one in (in)action… surely every sewing room should come with one as standard?
Everyone’s had those moments when they’ve just put the finishing touches to their Cleo dungaree dress and thought, hmm… what can I accessorise with to make this even better? The answer? Small, adorable dogs! Barbara and Vanessa certainly got the memo, and we love the result!
Rosa’s cat, Percy, is clearly a man of taste, as he’s snuggled right on down into her Cleo dungaree dress. Perhaps it’s the stylish patch that’s caught his eye? Perhaps he’s hoping to model in the next issue of Suzy Magazine!
Panda is testament to the belief that two is better than one, with two lovely pooches flanking her as she models her Bettine dress – and who wouldn’t be gazing with such admiration at such a beautifully made dress?
And finally, because we haven’t had enough cats in this post, here are some fabulous feline embellishments that have caught our eye. Emily added a pocket kitty and paw print collar to her Rosa shirt, whilst Sabina opted to morph her Cleo dungaree dress front into a smiling feline. Purrrfect!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this little look at the pets who inspire us and keep us company whilst we sew. We’d love to see more of your gorgeous pets hanging out whilst you make (or model) a Tilly and the Buttons pattern! Tag it with #PetsOnPatterns on Instagram so we can find it 🙂
