I made a big stuffed cat that is a replica of my best friend's actual cat. We are away at college, so this was a Christmas gift for her because she can't have pets anymore. Our Christmas get together with a few friends was last night, so she already got it and really loved it. Smiley

I made her from scratch without any patterns. The reference photos I used are linked at the bottom.





I didn't take a back side picture or one to get an idea of the size, so here is one after she opened it:


I had a couple of pictures of the cat on my deviantART:

I love this! It looks exactly like a fat cat looking for a belly scratch.

Thanks guys! Cheesy If there is enough interest, I will take pictures of the patterns for other people to use. I just free-handed it all on newspaper.
