Easy sewing patterns for cute plush kittens by Alison J Reid

Book Description

Featuring the most popular and distinctive breeds including long-haired, short-haired, hairless and even big cats each pussycat pattern comes with step-by-step instructions and full-size templates, making them purrrfect for all abilities. The finished little kitties would make cute brooches, bag charms and home accessories, or can even be scaled up to make bigger plushes, all of which will make your cat-loving friends have kittens!

Pattern, colour and shape are key in differentiating each breed, so capturing these details in felt was important. Luckily, there are so many different colours of felt available, including fur-like mottled effects. Felt's non-fraying, double sided, robust qualities make it easy to create all the little details that make each cat breed so unique and instantly recognizable. She has also used small amounts of wool curls and roving to add texture for truly strokable results.

Each cat pattern can be traced straight from the page (or enlarged if you want to sew a larger plush), and simple instructions mean that even beginners can get started. And because all the cats are sewn by hand, you don't need a sewing machine.

Whether you choose to sew just your own favourites, or make cats for the other crazy cat people in your life, this book will provide hours of fun and inspiration.
