Cat stuffed animal/pillow thing--this is the face and paws when I sewed them onto the body prior to stuffing.

This is for my grandma's birthday.



This is the finished product. I couldn't find my sewing machine pedal for the body, tail, and back foot, so the stitches are done with embroidery thread and are quite visible, whereas the stitching on the head and front paws are not visible. The eyes and nose are made out of felt, the whiskers are embroidered.

Roughly the size of an ordinary house cat, and roughly eight hours of work. I drew out the pattern myself. The bulk of the material is a lavender fleece material.

The way it is designed, if you rest your head between the cat's head and back leg, they sort of cradle you comfortably.

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
