Pillow cat

I have twins growing up who like outdoor games very much. I wanted to make for them something unusual and pleasant and, at the same time, functional. Pillows in the form of toys - the very thing, and sleep on them and with them you can, and sometimes throw them at each other. And to make them easy, every craftswoman will be able to.

Now proceed to the cutting of the back and tummy. I took a fleece on the tummy, and its size should coincide with the backrest you connected in a straightened form so that when stitching everything can be seized into the seam. Also for laying out two pieces of any fabric or padding, or, like me, from the batting. This is necessary for greater rigidity.
