Turn pieces right side out. I’m notgoing to lie to you, Pointy Kitty is abear to turn out. Be careful not tosplit seams open while turning outthose narrow apendages. Use the eraser end of a pencil to push legs, ears and tail mostly through and then a pin to pull throughthe edges. Stuff carefully. First the pointy bits and then the rest. For best standing-up-on-its-own results stuff ﬁrmly.
After stuffing stitch together bit of neck that was left open. Pin stuffed head to stuffed body at whatever jaunty angle you likeand blindstitch in place.
Cut the head and body stripes, eyes and nose out of felt. Pin into position and sew down with blanket stitch using thread orembroidery ﬂoss. Sew on button eyes and embroider whiskers. You’re done!
Cut the pattern pieces out of double thicknessof your fabric. Place
on the fold.
