Here's a cat I made. His name is Sharpie. (My husband named him... long story)



He is made from a pattern called 'Pointy Kitty' designed by Hilary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls.
Hilary gives the pattern away for free and you can download it here. http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/store/pointykitty.html
Hilary also has a gallery on Flickr in which people are able to upload photos of the pointy kitties they have made.
There's loads of them! http://www.flickr.com/groups/weewonderfulspointykitties/pool/

My pointy kitty, Sharpie was my second attempt at making a soft toy. He is made from an old white t-shirt and his face is made from felt.
The pattern includes some stripes that can be added to the head and body, but I wanted a white cat so I left these out.
The pattern also suggests buttons for eyes, but I decided to give him big felt eyes instead.
Sharpie's facial expression is my own design. He certainly looks rather shocked/excited.

I love my Sharpie! I had a few issues making him, but nothing major.
He has also had a few adventures since I made him, but as they're not craft related I won't write about them here.
If you want to read them, they are on my blog, along with why my husband named him Sharpie.

Hope you like him!

Thanks guys.

I just had to give him a cute face  Grin

He's had a few more adventures since I wrote my blog post I'm afraid. He managed to collect a small bunny army for Easter, and then got chocolate on him and had to brave the washing machine. He survived and is very white now! Chocolate stains all gone!
