Introducing sock kitty!!!

I got out the old sewing machine...determined to make a sock kitty. I studied the directions I had found online, HERE, for making a sock MONKEY. I was scared to start cutting, but I finally convinced myself just to try and come up with something...what did I have to lose? I found that I had not bought the correct length of sock, so I had to be a little creative and use two pink socks and 2 purple ones, to have enough material. After that, I knew this would be all fantasy kitty, as you will see with the addition of a peacock blue whiskers!!!

Well, I found this cute selection of striped socks at the dollar store. The are made of nylon, and the only suggestion I would have regarding that, is that I might try and find some cute socks that are a little tougher than that...stronger. This was my starting point, so I am learning from any mistakes...
Here you can see what type of socks I am talking about.

Here is my finished girl...I had her all done (except for sewing on the face details), last night around 1am! I popped up this morning and finished her up! I just HAD TO GIVE HER THESE BLUE WHISKERS!!!

I can't really decide if she looks like a cat or a bunny!!! I suppose sort of a little more like a cat. What do you think? Can you think of any good names for her? I think she would look quite parisienne in a little black beret!

She can be quite naughty...she enjoys mooning people...I just happened to catch her doing this to me this morning. I also caught her eating Doritos Cool Ranch flavored chips in the early morning hours! What a cat! I will have to keep my eyes on her, for sure!
