Adding flannel pads to the “Kitty Cat Cuff Socks” make them so cozy.
I was so inspired by the kitty cat flannel that I had to make a second pair and so that I could add the flannel pads. The nose and whiskers was next. If you are a dog lover add puppy dog flannel. It shouldn’t be hard to add a dog nose and tongue, should it?
