In May I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas or twill bag and embellished with buttons sewn on by hand. I know that not all kitties are black, despite what my house full of housepanthers try to tell me, and I decided to try out a few other kitty colors that work with a simple silhouette. Bella’s friends are white with bright blue eyes, gray with blue-green eyes like Bella’s, and ginger with bright green eyes.
I’m working on spattering orange and yellow on a black kitty for a tortie cat, and possibly a second stencil with stripes. We’ll see what the future brings. Read more below, or you can buy them right here!
Original Bella! Tote Bag with the black kitty silhouette
O.M.Geeeee! It’s Bella! On a bag with green button eyes just like her big round eyes! Bella, in silhouette, is stenciled at the bottom of a bag and with just big blue-green eyes that are two-hole buttons sewn on with black thread.
Based on one of my sketches of Bella from shortly after she arrived here simply called “Bella”, I pulled out the scan of the little painting and refined the design in Photoshop. Bella’s eyes are not yellow green, they are a cooler blue-green, and I found pretty close to a good color for her. Others don’t live in a house full of housepanthers, so I added the white, gray and ginger kitties who are her foster friends. Scroll down to see the full color selections.
