I made this tote bag to commemorate Félicette's journey into space on October 18, 1963.

The original Félicette, and inspiration for my business name, was the first cat in space. On October 18, 1963, France launched Félicette aboard Veronique AGI sounding rocket No. 47. Félicette was recovered alive after a 15 minute flight and a descent by parachute. Félicette had electrodes implanted into her brain, and the recorded neural impulses were transmitted back to Earth.

Her mission was a success and she had made a valuable contribution to scientific research. Once home she she was kept at the CERMA laboratories but unfortunately, a few months later they put her to sleep so that the electrodes that had been implanted in her brain could be studied. Even though she had a short life scientists were able to thoroughly analyze her reactions and use a very delicate neuro-physiological technique, that so far had only been achieved in laboratories.

Go Space Kitty, Go!

Tote your space cat love to the grocery, farmer's market, or your next quilting/book club meeting.

This bag can hold over 60 pounds. You can use it to carry your weekly produce or at least 30 fat-quarter bundles (for my quilters). Made from heavy cotton canvas it sits flat when open. It has triple stitched handles and can be used for years without wearing out. This bag is tough!

Made in the USA and screen printed locally in New Orleans! (I had the bags printed in New Orleans when I still lived there, Space Cat Station is currently in Rockville, MD)

Dimensions
18"w x 13"h x 6"d
25" cotton handles

using your stamp

To use your stamp, ink thoroughly and evenly, then press it gently but firmly to the paper. If the stamp is larger than the ink pad lay the stamp onto a flat surface and gently tap the ink pad repeatedly over the surface of the rubber stamp. If the stamp is smaller than the ink pad gently tap the stamp onto the ink pad.

caring for your stamp

For best results, clean your rubber stamp after each use, so the old ink won't unexpectedly appear on future projects. Remove excess ink by stamping on scrap paper or a damp paper towel. Never soak your stamp in water, it can loosen the adhesive that keeps the rubber attached to the backing.
