Tiny Felt Kitty

A palm-sized orange and black tabby cat, about 8 cm tall, not counting the ears.

The pattern is a modification on Sharon Welch’s felt animal pattern.

    Hello! I like to make stuffies for my nieces and nephews. (The first year they all got snakes!) I was wondering if you’d be willing to sell a pattern? I can’t find Sharon Welch’s version, she has so many patterns!
    Thank you. Your kitten is very very cute!

      Aww, thank you! Sorry for the late reply. I haven’t made stuffies in too long.

      I don’t have the original pattern anymore, but it’s really simple, and the idea is based on a kind of a pyramidical three-piece body. It’s really easy to recreate and modify for different kinds of animals. Let me see if I can recreate it in Paint. You’ll have to excuse me, I’m using a shared PC because my own is on the fritz right now.

      This is just an awful sketch to give you an idea. Your pieces should of course be symmetrical!

      The head is made up of two same size pieces. When working with felt, I only cut out ears on the back of the head, as you can see on the kitty.

      The body is made up of one bottom piece and two side pieces. In this picture, the one with dips on both sides is the bottom piece. This gives the kitty tiny stubby suggestions of legs!

      Start by stitching the top half of the side pieces together, and then stitch both of them on to the bottom piece, leaving the dipped end of the bottom piece to the front and the back.

      Ugh, I’m so sorry, I swear I can actually draw when it’s not just on Paint and with mouse. But I hope that gives you the idea! I use the same kind of body for my tiny dragons.

        Sweetie! I hadn’t realized you’d replied! Thanks so much for your help.

        I was popping in to buy your kitten so I could try to reproduce. So that’s me, I’m still going to get him because coupled with your instructions, it should be a snap. Plus, you’ve been very helpful and kind.
        Thanks again.
