This is Herb, pronounced Hurb. You know, short for Herbert. He is our new pet! I was working on altering a sweater and I was able to use the leftovers to make him. It was so easy and he turned out so well that I decided to do a basic stuffed animal tutorial.
Step 1: Start with a rectangular piece of fabric. The size of your rectangle will determine the final size of your cat. Turn your rectangle so that it's inside out.
Step 2: Sew along the pink lines to create the cats ears. Backstitch at the beginning and end.
Step 3: Turn right-side out and stuff, I used some torn up quilt batting.
Step 4: Hand stitch the bottom closed. Sew on button eyes and tie a ribbon around the neck.
Look at that your very own stuffed pet cat. Perfect for anyone with pet allergies!
