Steampunk cats enhanced version

IMG_0927m

Remember my steampunk kittens that I used to make back in 2010 and 2011? They were very popular. Unfortunately I ran out of supplies (the watch part thingies) but still get asked about them every now and then. Well I may or may not have a huge mess in my supplies; good news is I found a few more pieces that I used to make the kittens of. I didn’t want to do the regular simple kind …
