So a couple days before, I saw the first Bananya anime and I immediately thought to myself, “I need to make this cosplay for my kittens!” I saw my aunt the next day and I told her about my idea. She just so happened to have a pattern for a ball she was sewing and let me borrow it. I drew myself a new pattern that was longer and bigger.
One day, I was working from home, but I was pair programming with a coworker remotely, so I was just making comments on what they were doing. I felt I needed something to do with my hands, so I cut out 4 pieces of muslin using the pattern I drew. I sewed them together like I would a ball, but leaving the top open so the kitten could sit in it.
I thought it looked good, so I cut the pattern in the yellow cloth. I sewed the 4 pieces of yellow cloth to the muslin and turned it inside out to create 4 leaves. I sewed the leaves together to create the proper look of the banana.
Putting my kitten in was difficult. She put up a bit of a fight, but I ended up getting the pictures of her in the cosplay. I think it turned out super cute.
