  • Yun Yun in her Cat Bus Costume

    January 3, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    What can you create with some scraps of felt and a hot glue gun! Betty, local blogger with sweet ipomoea, made her cats two costumes. This simple declarative sentence does not begin to do her feline frippery project justice though! Betty clothed the ever patient Yun Yun as the Catbus from Miyazaki’s animated film My Neighbor Totoro, and Bumbe as Totoro. Yun Yun is the clear diva of the pair…check out the glittery eyed mousie headlights! Betty is an inspiration to us all.
