A few weeks ago I went to a mini-mini bazaar/exhibition in my neighborhood held by a day care house for the elderly. The older ladies get together and do patchwork and make dolls etc. (I forgot to take my camera, sorry). I fell in love with the little stuffed cats that were being displayed so I bought one even though the lady in charge knows that I do sewing myself. A couple days later she brought over the pattern so that I might make my own and so that is what I did this weekend.
The little brown stuffed kitty was the one I bought. It looks like it has been made of some Japanese cloth which gives it a rustic feel. I made my kitty out of some of the scraps I'd been given last week. I don't know how I could give you the pattern though I would if I could. This kitty is very easy to make. Guess what it is stuffed with. The little fragrance beads that you are sold for ash trays (in Japan). So now my stuffed kitty smells like lemons! If you just half fill the body of the animal then the beads shift around so that it hangs over things nicely.
