Cats for christmas

Added Oct 16, 2010

I got this reallly great pattern from the U S from McCalls craft (M5259) and just had to do these two little fellows. as i allways love to have christmas presents homemade (as well for my younger family members and friends) i just thought, that these kind of cats would be a nice idea.

they are made in a very soft and cosy fake fure outside and have an inside of rice (in the bottom) and soft-fibre in the top. additionally, i only needed matching bows, and a little santa’s head for one of them.

only my “real” cat does not like ’em too much. i wonder why ???

Material Notes

fake fure in creme, red felt, christmas print on cotton, embroidery thread, glaspearls for the eyes, rice and soft fibre for the filling




Garment Type
Leather/Fur, Wool
