from the studio: 12.4

If you've been reading our blog regularly, you know I have trouble sleeping. A couple of years ago, Zach bought me a travel-size lavender and buckwheat hull pillow, and on many of my frustrating sleepless nights, the pillow has helped to calm my nerves. That same comforting pillow is the inspiration for our latest collaboration -- mini lavender-filled kitty cat sachets.

Zach and I have been talking about making more stuffed animals for a while and these lavender kitties just seemed like the right-size project to take on before Christmas ... not too big, not too small ...

Zach carved three kitty blocks based on our cat's favorite poses (hence the diamond on the forehead!). And we printed a series of ten per image.

And then we sewed them together,

and stuffed them with recycled polyester filling mixed with a good amount of awesome-smelling dried organic lavender.

Here are the finished results ... a basket full of smelly cats no more!

We are taking some of these kitty cat lavender sachets to Artists' Own, and will also be listing them on Etsy at the end of the week.
