This Pussycat Pin project is from Salley Mavor's how-to book, Felt Wee Folk: Enchanting Projects. She showed how to make it on HGTVs The Carol Duvall Show, but don't worry if you missed it -- you'll find instructions in the book and on her blog.

If you have basic embroidery skills, it's a cinch to make in just six easy steps. CLICK HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS. (Is it ever too early to start working on Holiday gifts??)

Mavor, who graduated from RISD, is a gifted artist and crafter, and she has a special touch when it comes to cats. This little guy appears in her book, Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes:.

Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes is a nursery rhyme book told through Mavor's amazing felt landscapes. You can spend hours just reveling in the details, like the grass, fencing and fur in this feltscape:
