Cat's Eyes

                                                           Cat's Eyes- Cat's Eyes

How terrified are you right now? Let me tell you, every time I look at these, I want to scream, and I made them! I came up with the idea to paint cat's eyes on these sweater clips because I thought the shape of them would be perfect, and I was having trouble figuring out what else I could paint on that small and round of a surface.  The process of painting them was fun, but I did not envision them to be quite as frightening as they turned out. My inner macabre really came through on this one! Even though I am tooootally terrified of my own creation, I kind of wish I could keep them for myself, because I think they'd look pretty awesome on a sweater! However, I have to get out of the habit of creating things to sell and then keeping them for myself, so in the shop they go. Restraint!

P.S. When Sarah first saw these, she said they looked like velociraptor's eyes, which I think is even more awesome than cat's eyes! I almost listed them as that, but then I thought perhaps not many people would search "Sweater Clips in Velociraptor's Eyes" on etsy, haha!

P.P.S. Just to show you that not everything I make is terrifying, here are a few other things I've made the past few weeks! All in the shop!


  1. You have some gorgeous stuff there! I agree they're kinda scary but in a totally awesome way!

  2. Wow, those are really unique and beautiful! Very cool :)

  3. Awesomely awesome! They do look like velociraptors, haha. The other ones are really cool as well. You are one clever lady!

  4. Haha, they're cute- in a terrifying way, which is so good if you ask me ^^
