Sorry for that (lame) title!
Some of the first softies I made were adapted from this wonderful free Wee Bunny pattern from Wee Wonderfuls, and they were gifts for or requests from friends. Since those friends like cats (and dogs) more than bunnies, I decided to adapt the pattern — which was easy, since all I did was change the shapes of the ears and tails.
I’ve made several over the course of the past year. I think they turned out great, if not entirely perfect (due to my lack of skill). I actually developed callouses on my fingers from hand sewing these, because some of the felt materials I used were quite stiff and tough to sew through by hand. I broke several needles, even (where to buy tough ass hand sewing needles, I wonder?). But I did have fun making these, and I loved how my friends appreciated my efforts.
