This was the part of the Mystery Cat project that had me worried (panicked), but it's the very same technique and makes a nice 3D effect. It's just done with wider ribbon which is a little harder to control. So I have conquered my fear of that stitch! And really it's just a matter of trying - what can possibly happen ? You need to buy more ribbon?

And finally, I want to show you a photo of my inspiration....Jack who was adopted by our family (actually he adopted us...ok... I went across the street and picked him up and stuffed him inside my sweatshirt) after Hurricane Wilma. He inspired me to start the Mystery Cat in the first place! Which led to the birds, etc. If you have kids you have read... If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - that's me.
According to my husband, I also have Ellie May Clampet syndrome. If you are of a certain age you will remember the Beverly Hillbillies - she collected critters. He's a keeper. By the way, he is in front of the cover to our gas tank for our generator - yes we live in Hurricane country!
