Cat-shaped plushies are proving to be something of a challenge, since my printable fabric isn't stretchy at all. Plus they're a pain to stuff, thanks to the ears...
So, I'm hoping this oval pillow gets the vague cat-shape across without needing to be fancier than an oval. That way it can pull double duty as a pillow. What do you think?
Before stuffing, this was 12x16 inches. The back is black -- or is it better to have the back be a contrasting color of cat? If I print both sides, I can't have an opening across the back for the stuffing... so, I need a better way to stitch his gut shut somehow. Whipstitching by hand is a bit too irregular. Maybe a zipper foot? Hmmmmn.
