I recently saw a photo, that had a box filled with kitties and I love it.
So, I thought I would make one of my own. I have a box and nothing in it, so perfect to fill with kitties.
First I drew out a kitty shape. Then I took scraps out of my basket and sewed them together to make two pieces a bit larger than the cat pattern. I did make sure that the face area would have a neutral shade, so the features would show up.
I used freezer paper and traced the cat design and cut it out, then placed that right sides in with the other piece. I sewed it by machine and cut off the excess, making a snip at the curves for turning.
I used regular stuffing and sewed him at the bottom. I went without a tail, since these will be box sitters. He is 10" tall.
This is the box he will go in. I love how it came out and will make a skinny and fat one, to have a variety of kitty characters.
