In preparation for the Cat Portrait Stitchalong I'm hosting next month, I'm making a portrait of my cousin's cat Sambal. I thought it would be a good idea to stitch a cat portrait while writing about embroidering cat portraits so I could remind myself of all the steps (small and big) that are involved in the process. The portrait is nearly finished and the guide needs a little more work but it's looking good. The plan is to let the Stitchalong start on Thursday, the 22nd of September. If you'd like to keep up to date with the Stitchalong you can sign up for the newsletter here! On my Facebook page several people have already posted a photo of their cat models, I can't wait to see how all the portraits will turn out!
