Angel Kitty

Angel Kitty

Technique: Sewing

natural quilt batting
polyester filling
calico thread
7.5mm animal eyes

sewing machine
stencil brush

Print and cut out the pattern below.

(pattern up shortly)

Fold the quilt batting right sides together and cut two kitties. The pattern does not include a seam allowance, so be sure to cut out about 1/4 - 1/2 an inch larger.

Take one piece and face it right side up. Insert the animal eyes according to the manufacturers instructions. Mine have a screw type post that you push through the fabric and then a stopper to secure on the other end.

With a needle and thread sew loops for whiskers, securing thread on the wrong side.

Place kitties right side together and sew around edge, leaving about an inch to turn and stuff.

Turn right side out fill with polyfill. Whipstitch the opening together.

With a stencil brush, brush a little highlights on the cheeks and ears. I used pastel chalks, you could use light pink paint and drybrush it on, you could even use cosmetic blush if that is all you have.

Glue a pom pom for the nose, and embellish. I used a gold chenille for the halo, put some adorable wings I found at the two dollar shop, and used a bead and ribbon around the neck.
