Cat Loaf Cloth

My pattern today is for a cat loaf. If you have a cat, you'll be familiar with this pose. There are a few kitties in Stitch Love: Sweet Creatures Big & Small (and plenty of pups too), but there was no cat loaf. And we just needed one.

For Valentine's Day, I thought it appropriate to add a little sentiment, and what could be better than "I Loaf You." If you want to make this for someone you don't like, leave off the heart, and it sounds a bit like "I Loathe You." But you wouldn't do that, would you?

But I digress. To go along with a loaf, I went for something that could be used with bread. The cloth was made just like the Holiday Mouse Furoshiki Cloth from Stitch Love.

How fun would it be to gift someone with some freshly baked bread and wrap it up in a cloth like this? Good bread would be an excellent Valentine for me!

Right now I'm keeping this cloth for myself, so we're using the cloth in a basket. Which would also be a perfectly fine way to gift some bread. Or really, anything for a cat person!
