This is Mortimer the Cat. I made him after dinner last night. He's the same pattern as the bears, just with pointy ears and a tail sewn to his butt.
I'm really enjoying making these. It's really a revelation for me to have toys I made have such posable joints. My roommate Pete, who is a stop-motion animator, has actually suggested we work them up as puppets and make a movie with them. This is a very appealing idea. I'm already full of a million tangents that this could go off to.

More later. I'm off to buy more felt and some other art supplies, and then on a long delayed and much needed trip to the grocery store.
