So many pieces of fabric were cut and stitched to make this appliqued mola cat! Layer by layer, stitch by tiny stitch.. hand sewn using the same time honored techniques handed down from Kuna mother to daughter for generations.
Another of our original cat designs featuring *stellar* mola elements as seen in the scan to the right >> ^^
Colors are vibrant.. the stitchery is IMPECCABLE!
Well sewn with great attention to detail by a very gifted Kuna Indian artist, San Blas Islands, Panama. All the hand stitching is excellent.. double machine stitched around the edges and triple stitched at all stress points.
