[Pattern] Mr Tibbles the Cat

This pattern was created by http://www.ravelry.com/people/Claudia1980 The pattern consists of single crochet stitches (sc) and is crocheted in rows rather than in a spiral. Turn the work after each row. “sc2tog” means decreasing one stitch (st) by crocheting two stitches together. For this pattern, I used the invisible method for decreasing. There are plenty of instruction videos on YouTube, for instance this one.

Follow the same pattern to crochet another piece. Before sewing both pieces together, make a face using needle and black thread. To make a bow tie, see the instruction below, which is from the Lovesome Blog. Fasten the bow tie to the body with needle and thread. Next, sew both pieces together. I used the mattress stitch, which is a nice way of seaming without having to turn the work inside out. Make sure to stuff the tail while you can still reach inside. Stuff the entire cat before closing up. Finally, sew the bottom half of the tail to the body.

Barbie Scores Big Time With Zendaya Inspired Barbie Doll
Kudos to Mattel for recognizing true beauty. It wasn't that long ago that Zendaya was getting ridiculed for her 2015 Oscar's look consisting of a gorgeous dress and a head full of faux dreadlocks. While some believed the Disney star looked absolutely stunning, others including Giuliana Rancic [see clip here] had a lot to say. Rancic took to televisions popular Fashion Police mentioning that the young star "looked as if she'd smell like weed and patchouli oil" and let's just say the controversy was in the media for awhile. Zendaya was honored at the Rock 'N Royals concert this past Saturday benefitting VH1's Save The Music Foundation in Los Angeles. It's so amazing that it hasn't even been one full year since the comment sparked controversy and the creator of Barbie has taken a negative and turned it into a positive creating a replica Barbie of Zendaya's Oscar look. Talk about an amazing moment in history. There have been a couple previous African American women who had a Barbie created after them including both Brandy and Raven Symone, but there is something extremely liberating about this Zendaya Barbie. Maybe it's the fact that it's a way to say society doesn't know beauty or maybe it is a memorable reminder that with every negative comes a positive. According to Zendaya, the doll means so much more than just a commemoration of her popular outfit. She says, "When I was little, I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my ... how times have changed."
