An extra special crazy quilted cat

A very nice lady who ordered a specially-made cat for a gift for a friend last fall asked for one to be made for herself this winter. She sent me hand-made lace and vintage buttons to include on a tuxedo cat. The pink lace and the blue that is on the white part of the cat's chest are hand crocheted, and the extra pink that I didn't use along the seam was gathered into the rose at the cat's neck. I added a bit of vintage lace of my own, along with some buttons and leaves to make the cat's collar. The buttons she sent are worked into the pink lace seam.
