This little box is a gift for a friend who enjoys cats and bright yarns. I didn't have much of a design plan in mind as I started and pretty much just painted whatever came to mind on the cat shapes. I'm not that thrilled with the results but it was fun to work on and I think my friend will enjoy it anyway.
The border around the bottom of the box is supposed to be balls of variegated yarn unrolling playfully. I may come back to this idea sometime and develop it further, possibly try it on a chest large enough to store knitting and crochet supplies in.
