I made these two stuffed cat toys this weekend, for two special little boys. They were surprisingly fun to make. I went into the project expecting the work to be a little fiddly for my taste, but I the pattern was pretty simple and they came together quickly. The handstitching on the faces took the longest, but I enjoyed that part the best - giving them personalities. I love their patterned bellies.
I gave one with a small apology, because I know that family is a dog family, and the parents are not at all cat people. But as it turns out, the small one is currently obsessed with cats, which I didn't even know. Perfect!
