Cat pattern - a cattern, if you will!

This is my first go at following Julia Rothman's pattern tutorial on Design Sponge by hand, cutting up my paper. My natural impatience with measuring and cutting carefully meant I bodged it a bit, and it came out a bit wonky and join-showing... it's such a great way to do patterns though, I must just be more patient next time!
Contorting cats!

oooh this is soooo gorgeous! I love it! Just discovered your site through Kalo above (Hi Kalo!) and your work is so gorgeous! (I think I said that already - oops!).

Have you heard of the website Spoonflower? (www.spoonflower.com). You can get your repeat pattern printed by them on fabric - I had a few pieces done (I think it's on my blog somewhere) and it's great quality. The delivery is often slow as I think they are so popular, but well worth the wait, you should get some kitty gymnastics fabric printed!
