Dimensions

Height: 9 Inches; Width: 8 Inches

This little rustic patriotic kitty will be a focal point to any 4th of July decorating in your home! His whimsical and charming character will capture everyone's attention! Perfect on a cupboard, shelf or mantle surrounded by rustic painted wood stars and perhaps a strand of berry vines.

This patriotic kitty is sewn from pieces of a vintage chenille bedspread and coffee-dyed to a wonderful tan with hints of darker brown. His face is handsewn with black glass bead eyes and a few whiskers have been added.

His body is weighted for standing upright and his chenille tail is sewn into a curled position.

There's a tiny bowtie at his neck made from blue patriotic fabric. (Fabric may vary from the photo due to my supply on hand.)

He's holding an American flag (the type used for party decorations) which is wrapped around his back and tacked down in several places. The flag is sewn on a piece of onsaburg, which has been coffee dyed and frayed for the old-time rustic country feel.

There's also a handpainted wood firecracker in his hands with a jute "fuse".

Approximately 6 inches tall (15.24cm) and 8 inches (20.32cm) across (including the curled tail). With the flag, he is 9 inches (22.86cm) tall.


*only 2 of these cats will be available for 2019*
