Coco’s 1st Birthday + Christmas Giveaway

The last post being kind of negative, I think it’s time we come back to being positive! And while many bad things happened, I am blessed to say that even more good things are happening! One of them – Coco’s birthday. Yep, this little coconut turned 1 year old this month. Even though it’s been less than a year since I got her, it seems like she has lived with me for ages. And though she isn’t seen by the public as much as my Sphynx sisters, she is loved just as much! Coco is such sweetheart, who purrs and rubs against you all the time. She is just one super happy and positive kitty!

I still remember how I could hold her in my palm – she was so tiny and cute! Now she’s a real lady – super soft one, who loves to play and run around. And sleep under the blanket of course.

I am so happy that she and my two Sphynx girls get along so well – Coco is just a sister from another mister. 🙂

I don’t know about you, but it starts to feel like Christmas. Now I just need some snow, and Christmas songs will come to my home! But at the moment it’s cold, windy and rainy. Not very Christmasy, huh? But I refuse to accept that and that’s why I decided to do a giveaway! It’s my way of saying “Thank you” to all the wonderful people, who support me and believe in me. All the information about participating is in PurringPyjamas Facebook page, you just need to follow this link: Christmas giveaway. I wish you good luck, because that is the only thing that will decide who’s the winner! 😉

Project snowsuit, or how one Sphynx cat just refuses to give winter a way

About a month ago I was contacted by a person, who wanted something rather unusual: a snowsuit for her Sphynx cat. She said that her cat needs daily walks,  and towards the winter the weather gets cold where she lives, so she needs something that would protect her naked kitty from getting cold and sick. She mentioned that she contacted some shops that sell cat clothes before, but none of them agreed to do this kind of project. And now I understand why: it takes a lot of thinking, a lot of time and quite a bit of work.

6

I can’t say it was very difficult to figure out the structure of the snowsuit, because I have my own cats, that are live example of what my clients look like 🙂 The knitted part was pretty easy and quick. But the real thing started with the sewing. I spent 12 hours straight sewing it. Yep, maybe that looks silly, because it’s not a HUGE project, but it is quite time consuming, when you hand sew every single detail.

The snowsuit’s outer layer is hand knitted and the inner layer is fleece. It is very warm and thick, so the wind and cold won’t reach the kitty. The paws are also waterproof – I sewed the glove-like fabric, which will prevent the paws from getting wet. Oh, and in case you were wondering why there’s a hole in the snowsuit, it’s for the harness.

7

I sent the pictures to the customer and so far she is satisfied with everything, which is great. The only concern that I have is the fit. Even though I had all the needed measurements, it’s always a gamble with something like this. If it was only the knitted part, I wouldn’t worry even a bit, because it’s so stretchy and comfy, so even if something’s a little tight somewhere, it will stretch out. But it’s the fleece I am worried about. It’s stretchiness is quite limited, so if something doesn’t fit, it might be difficult to make it bigger. But fingers crossed it will fit!

Would I take on another project like that? Probably yes! Even though I felt quite miserable after those 12 hours of sewing and all my muscles were sore, if the sweater will fit the kitty it will be the biggest reward! I think it is important to do something you’ve never done before, because it gives you not only skills, but is also daring and interesting.

When water turned into wine

And what exactly happened when water turned into wine? Awesome yarn was born, that’s what! 🙂 And from it came this furry sweater for a naked kitty.

This sweater isn’t a new addition to my shop, but I wasn’t satisfied with the previous pictures, so I finally decided it’s time to change it. I found the old sweater, fixed it up a little bit, grabbed Beliza and shot some pictures. I think it turned out pretty good.

1

This shoot was quite challenging – all Beliza wanted to do was to lay and look out of the window. And yes, the picture you see above was one of the two shots of her actually sitting. Anyway, we got some good pictures, and that’s what matters!

Yarn is 70% acrylic and 30% wool. It’s quite fluffy and soft because of the acrylic and the wool gives that nice warmth to it. This style sweater is available in many sizes and colors: wine, peach, black, orange, white, pale green, bright blue and bluish purple. Nice selection of colors to suit everyone’s taste. Oh, and did I mention that the rose charm you see is actually made of antique silver? And those little stones are natural agate. Isn’t it awesome? It will suit any fancy kitty’s taste. You can find the sweater over here: Fluffy sweater.

Buried under the leaves

Can you believe today is the last day of September? Gosh, where all this time is going?! It’s hard to believe that soon we’ll be waiting for the first snow and exchanging gifts on Christmas. I am not sure how much I am feeling all the autumn spirit, but cats are definitely there! Even though they still love spending their time in the balcony, more and more often they choose to rather stay inside under the blanket. And so this autumnal sweater was inspired by them.

1

I’ve had this yarn for quite short time, because I wanted to do something with it. A lot. I think it reflects autumn so well – it is soft, warm and those brown & burgundy colors are simply gorgeous.

Only one sweater is available in size XXS, because I could find only small amount of this yarn to buy. It can be made with sleeves too, so all depends on your wishes only. Yarn is 100% wool, so believe me – when I say it’s warm, it really is.

And here are some more pictures from shoot! Enjoy!

Oh yes, here comes the dessert! They are so addicted to all the vitamin pastes and treats. But they earn it! :)

PurringPyjamas Halloween Collection 2015: Eat, Drink And Be Scary!


When witches go riding, and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween.
~Author Unknown

Even though it’s only September (or, actually, ALREADY September), I started planning Halloween collection for PurringPyjamas back in the summer. And even though lately I’ve been crazy busy, I managed to finish and put up all the sweaters for sale like couple of weeks ago. And, well, PurringPyjamas blog apparently got a little forgotten… But not anymore! I started doing some more time planning, so I’m hoping to be posting over here at least once a week. Yay, more cute and soft cats coming! Because internet can never have too many cat pictures and videos. Ever.

Anyway, so here it is – Halloween collection that I finally finished! Let’s get into it.

So the very first sweater is one of the Halloween essentials – I mean, come on, who doesn’t have skulls on Halloween? We have human skulls (fake ones, hopefully, but you can have whatever makes you happy) at home, but I decided to pimp the cats with cat skulls. Because why would the cat be interested in us, humans? 😀 Let the cat have this super cool and super warm cat skull sweater.

This awesome sweater is warm and stretchy, because yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide. It is available for purrrchasing right over here: Cat Skull Sweater.

When I was thinking about Halloween collection, I always had in my mind this picture of a cat sitting on the moon. So yeah, I guess you got the cat and all you need now is…the moon! And this sweater gives you exactly that. It also gives to your cat warm pleasures and is very soft.

Yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide. Fly your cat to the moon right over here: Fly To The Moon.

Now this one is definitely another one (and probably the main) of Halloween essentials – pumpkin! Believe it or not, I have never ever carved a pumpkin in my life, because over here in Europe (at least in Lithuania and Finland) people don’t really celebrate Halloween. So at least I can keep up the Halloween spirit through this cool pumpkin sweater!

Again, yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide. Carve the pumpkin together with your cat over here: Pumpkin.

And the last, but definitely not the least is this orange sweater with a bat. Yep, I’ve never seen a bat either, but I think they’re insanely cute! So that’s the story behind this sweater: I like bats, they’re cute, they’re also associated with Halloween, so why not let your cat to rock a sweater with bats?

And yes, once again the yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide, which means this sweater is soft, stretchy and oh so warm. You can purchase it right over here: Bats.

And what about you? Do you celebrate Halloween? Whether you like Halloween or not (or simply don’t care about it), have a beautiful day and enjoy this colorful autumn!
