The Owl and the Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy Cat


These two adorable figures inspired by the well known nursery rhyme, would make great gifts for young and older.

Within the session you will complete one of the figures but will also receive the pattern to make the other in your own time.

The workshop helps you through guided instruction to cut out, construction by machine sewing and then to decorate and fill with stuffing. This project doesn’t require any specialist skills and the materials to make these two figures are easy to acquire.

Level of Experience

This sewing project is suitable for anyone with some experience in sewing. Perhaps for those less confident it is suggested to start with the cat and move onto the owl.
