After making several pumpkin pillows, I branched out into black cats. I made my own felted wool by washing regular wool in hot water and then drying it on high. I gave lighter, brighter colors an aged look by using a taupe hot-water dye. This dull orange wool, for example, started out as neon orange. In addition to blanket stitches, I used a chain stitch to create whiskers, eyelashes, and other details./
