Boy this brings back memories. My Mother & I made many of these years ago we made a bunch of these, infact I might still have 1 or 2 hanging around somewhere. Also maybe the instructions not sure. I received a store bought one for a present & my Mother copied it, she was very good at copying things. So I'll have to look for it! If I do I'll take a pic of it & If I have my Mother's own pattern, I'll put it on here too. It'll take me a little while to find it. These are pretty cool! Haven't thought of these Cats in years!!

I found my Cat I made maybe 30 yrs. ago somewhere there. She has the plastic eyes & I painted on them so they would look more cat like. I didn' find my Mother's pattern but I found a craft magazine. I know I can't show it here but the name is Quick & Easy Crafts April 1994. It's called a BonBon Cat  a lot newer than my Moms hers was in the 70's I think. It's pretty much like"funthreads" tute. Though the body has 3 sections a upper & 2 lower sections. And I'm not quite sure about her peices of felt in between the sections. But it probably helps.
So anyway I think maybe for a sturdier Cat why not use Fleece & cut strips & tie it somehow & kind of do the same thing. I'll have to think about it. This has not been played with very much & been stored for 20+ yrs.

Side View, the yarn is very soft. I can't remember the name.
What do you think of the old girl?

I found another site that has the pattern. It took me awhile but I finally found one.

wow these pictures bring back memories.  I have all the cardboard cut outs with the direstions on what to do with each cardboard, but I do not have any instructions on how to put it together once I have all the yarn wrapped.  If anyone has the full direction I would appreciate either a place to purchase or a link to download or an email with the pattern/directions.  Craftergranny2004@yahoo.com

Thank you so much for the walk down memory lane, the lady that gave me most of the boards has since passed on so I can't go to her.
