Plushie - Gorfickle The Cat
Polar Fleece Fabric
This sewing project shows you how to sew a plushie/softie toy shaped like a cat.
Start by printing out the following patterns. These pattern pages should be sized to fit onto a standard A4 sized paper.
Cut 1 body piece
Cut 2 head pieces
Cut 2 legs 4.5" x 12" (11.5 x 30.5 cm) or you can make yours shorter or longer.
Sew the two head pieces together leaving an opening at the bottom. Tun inside out.
Stitch the body piece with the seam at the back and leave a gap for filling.
Now stitch the head to the body.
Stitch your legs together and fill with wadding.
Sew the legs onto the base, remember your legs should be facing inside so that when you turn your body the right side around the legs will be on the outside.
Fill your cat firmly with wadding and stitch up all the openings.
Follow the picture for the face but you can give your own cat personality by tweeking the face design to suit your style.
Make a scarf with a length of fleece to wrap around his neck and to hide his neck seam.
