It's been so long since I created a pattern, so I felt like I was about due for another one. I was contemplating what to make when I found out that my niece--who's birthday is coming up--is totally infatuated with cats, ballerinas, and everything PINK right now. I thought it would be super fun to make a little kitty for her--and a pattern for you--...and this is the result!
I love this little kitty! She's about 15.5 inches tall and has such sweet little facial features.
Craftsy Shop or my Etsy Shop. It's one of my cheaper patterns, because it's a bit simpler than the others.
It's 18 pages long with over 50 color "how-to" pictures. This includes 4 pages of full size template pieces. In terms of licensing, this pattern is intended for the home sewer. You are welcome to use my pattern to make dolls for a small scale craft fair or online shop, but no mass production, okay?
A typical page looks something like this:
Here are the skills you'll need:
•Sewing straight seams and back-stitching (and when to use) with a sewing machine
•Ability to adjust length of stitch on your sewing machine to make stronger, smaller seams and longer seams for gathering
•Using hand-sewing (the Ladder stitch) to close the doll body and basic embroidery stitches (whip stitch, chain stitch, back stitch) is helpful but not required.
•Pressing with an iron to fold in seam allowances
•Ease of working with small seam allowances (1/4 inch) and sewing in small spaces.
•Some experience transferring an image (the face template) onto the fabric (for embroidery) is helpful, but not required.
I hope that you all like this new addition to my pattern shop! I'm excited to have something new there and I hope you are too.
Have a great week everyone!
