Crochet Bread Box Animals

January 8, 2016

On New Year’s Eve my 12 year old cat, Colonel Mustard, passed away from lung cancer. I was (and still am) devastated.


I spent the first three days in bed, but on the fourth day, wanted to do something to help me get over it. I also needed something to snuggle with, because Colonel was my snuggle buddy. So, I made this “breadbox cat” resembling him. I don’t know if you can tell in the picture, but it has one black whisker, because as Colonel got older, one of his whiskers turned black.

Of course, Claire stole it and wanted me to make her her own. She looks sad in the picture because I was trying to take it from her so I could take pictures of it without her engulfing it.

She asked me to make her a dog and instead of going all out and crocheting something new, I re-purposed some unused crochet projects I made a while back and made her a rainbow doggy.

She insisted on putting one of her bows on the top of its head.
