Fish Collar for my cat, Penny!

Well I'm trying to update more regularly. I made this a couple of weeks ago. It's not very pratical as a collar, but it was still fun to try it on him. I used Red Heart Super Saver [Pale Yellow] for the fish and Caron Simply Soft [White] for the collar so it would be nice and soft for Penny. But I think next time, I would make the collar a different color so that it stands out more!

You can't really see in the pics, but I made these 3 little bands on the white collar so that it could be tightened or loosened by pulling through to the other side. The collar was done simply in 1 sc all across. For the fish pendent, I freeformed until I got the shape I wanted.

Just the fish wrapped around him and his collar before I made his white one.

It's cute. :) Though I agree, another colour would be nice. Maybe a light blue, to contrast with her orange/brown colouring? If you make another one, I mean.

*his* colouring, I mean.

ooh I love R.O.D! Yeah light blue would be nice, it would be like the fishy was swimming along in the sea ;)

maybe crochet on a "breakaway" collar clasp, so that if she gets caught on something it doesn't hurt her.

but cute!

The collar isn't very tight. It doesn't stay on him for very long! I think when he scratches himself, he just gets it over his head.

Awww, pretty kitty!!! It looks like a nice collar. My kitties won't hardly suffer wearing one. =P Though, it would be awseome if you could work out a way to get their ID information onto the fish tag?

Yeah I think my cat doesn't like collars either. But he's had one for so long, I think he looks naked now w/o it. To me, he just doesn't look as cute. Well, maybe if I made the collar from a different yarn, maybe something sturdier, I could do that! Because as of now, the collar is pretty temporary - just for photo shoots I guess! ;)

Black eyeball would be fun. I was actually thinking of making it more dangly, the fish hanging from its head, but eventually decided with sideways. i was inspired from the Studio Ghibli movie, The Cat Returns!

Thank you! I think Penny is pretty cute myself. I can't pass by w/o going to him and hugging him. My whole family is like that! He's actually a stray too. But he's probably like, "Why can't these people leave me alone!"
