Pussy Cat

This little creature is designed by Dawn Lewis and was published in Patchwork & Stitching magazine (Vol15 No. 2)

I decided to enlarge the pattern slightly bigger than the copy in the magazine. The felt used on the face was sent to me by a friend a few years ago after she made some Christmas decorations and the buttons used as eyes were part of a jar of buttons I received in a swap once. I like how all these different elements came together to make the gift.

Originally I was going to turn this into a door stop but decided it was a bit too small so its just a softie. The pattern is very simple and you could easily make a whole batch of these in any size or sizes you want. The designer is happy for people to make them as fundraising items for fetes and charity events if you credit her as the designer.
