Embroidery Pattern Kitten

     I went on a "clear it out" rampage last weekend when I opened a rarely used cabinet in my crafting area.  I think most of us have such places but mine was filled with shoe boxes of crafting things I hadn't seen since my move to this city almost 6 years ago!   During my last move, I simply moved the cabinet with boxes intact and without sorting anything.  After this weekend, there are two shoe boxes left in the cabinet and I know everything that's in each one.

     Among the things I found were several packets of iron-on embroidery patterns, including this one of a kitten with flower.  The flower may have been intended as a daisy but since I did it in fall colors, it's now a sunflower.

I based this on the sketch at The Outlawz
flipping it so that the bow becomes the butterfly.

Great idea to go from a daisy to sunflower on this precious card! Love the little kitten too.
I'm still finding things and then not knowing where other things are since moving.

Sweet card. I have to go through my supplies to and purge what I don't use. That is a job for another day.

What a really clever idea to use your found embroidery to use on your card!! She's adorable in her Fall colors and that ribbon is so pretty! :) I think I have too many spaces that I'm afraid to even look into at this point!! LOL! Totes had to moved recently and of course I found things that I had to go back into and pull out!! I think hubby wants me to keep it in the totes!! LOL!!
