For my next batch of plushies I was inspired by the cutest cartoon cat, Pusheen, seen below.
First thing I did was make a pattern and trace it onto felt. I always clean it up a bit while I'm cutting it out as well. I made a few in pink as a birthday present for one of my close friends.
Then I started a blanket stitch around the outside in a white embroidery floss. I bought pink embroidery floss to match but of course couldn't find it when I needed it!
I didn't want to do anything permanent so I cut out two pieces of felt for eyes and puff painted a mouth on an extra piece of felt.
I'm going to add some magenta stripes to the lighter Pusheen once I get my magenta puff paint, but this is what it looks like stuffed.
Thanks for reading! :]
Update: I have added the magenta stripes to the lighter Pusheen. It now lives with my friend Loren! She said she wanted a pink plush cat for her birthday, but I couldn't help but make a matching one for myself!
