Today's showcased pattern is a super cute softie that's the perfect size for toddlers to carry around, and to slip into their pockets. Isn't the heart face adorable!
Stephanie, from Swoodson Says, shows how to make her Felt Pocket Kitty Cat. A template is provided for the cat outline, the heart shaped face and the facial details. It's all easy hand sewing, so a relaxing activity to do in front of the TV one night.
The little kitty cats end up at only 1½" tall, so they are not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
I think this would be a wonderful project for a slightly older child to sew themselves. Make up a kit with all the supplies included and the felt already cut out. Pop the lot in a drawstring bag (you may have to alter the dimensions), and you have a ready made gift - so much nicer than many store bought kits.
