Squark & Cosmic Sewing Pattern
If your creativity sometimes leads you to the dark side, Squark the Bird and Cosmic the Cat are for you. These two charaters are made from felt. They’re quick and easy to make and if you’re looking for something to spice up your Halloween decor, they’re just the thing.
Squark stands approximately 25cm tall, and Cosmic is 50cm tall including the tail.
This is the printed version of the pattern. It consists of full-size pattern sheets, instructions, and a pattern cover with a colour photo. A printed soft toy pattern is a great choice because you will receive the pattern templates ready to cut out and instructions that you can lay out on our work table to refer to as you sew. Once you have paid for your order, we will ship the pattern to your delivery address.
