Adapted from an antique Japanese textile, the Japanese Beckoning Cat pattern offers two options with the same template.: One cat is black and has its right paw up; the other cat is white and raises its left paw. Since the image is about 18” high, and the curves are soft, the appliqué is very easy. Finish it with basic borders and then quilt or add sashiko stitching to your background.
