This is a cute cat cushion. Great as a decoration in children's room. You will need fabric, buttons, soft toy filling and Heat Bond Lite iron-on adhesive.
Draw the basic shape of the cat onto a piece of a material (2x) of your choice and cut it out. Draw (2x) shape of the tale and cut the tale out as a separate piece. Draw the shape of a face and the heart onto Heat Bond Lite iron-on adhesive and cut it out. Iron the 2 cut out pieces of the iron-on adhesive onto the materials of your choice and then iron the 2 pieces to the material that's to be a front of the cat. To make sure that the face and heart materials would stay attached, sew round its edges. Sew on nose and mouth and eye buttons.
Sew 2 pieces of the tale together leaving a lowest point of the tale opened and stuff it with soft toy filling. Then put 2 pieces of the materials (cat's body) together, secure it together with pins. Then attach the tale to the side of the cat and also secure it to the side of the cat with pins. Ensure that the tale is inside the cat, in between the 2 pieces of materials. This way when you sew the 2 pieces (incl the tale) together and turn the materials inside out, the tale will end up being on the outside of the cat. When sewing the body of the cat together, remember to leave some part undone so you can stuff the cat's body with soft toy filling. Then close the opening sewing it by hand. Hand sew the tip of the tale to the side of the cat.
