I saw a picture of some Cat Softies on Chunky Chooky's blog http://chunkychooky.blogspot.com/ from a new softies book. I made up my own pattern to make a cat as I thought they were so cute! Mine is less 'purrfect' than the ones on the original picture, but I still like it. I used hand dyed pure wool for the front and face and Amy Butler fabric. as well as some Japanese sewing tape I've had stashed for a while.
