Catty McCat Face

Catty McCat Face

Catty McCat Face Toys

I don't make toys very often - as I just can't get the features right!
However I wanted to make a little cat and kitten for a sweet little girl I know.
I think maybe I should go and have a strong coffee before I attempt the faces.
Catty McCat Face

Small amount of DK yarn
3.25mm or 3.5mm needles
Small amount of polyester stuffing

Cut off yarn (leaving a 6” ‘tail’ to use for sewing up)
