Thomas Felt Cat Pattern
Thomas is a 22cm (8 1/2 inches) fully jointed cat. He’s made from felt, with glass eyes. This fun patchwork kitty with his pet mouse is a toy any child will treasure and play with for hours. If you want to make Thomas for your own collection, you could use mohair or synthetic fur instead of felt. Full size templates and instructions, including the mouse. This sewing pattern is suitable for beginner to intermediate level teddy bear makers.
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.
What Fabric is Suitable to Make this Cat?

Hand Sewing or Sewing Machine?
We prefer to sew our bears entirely by hand. You can save time by sewing the seams using a sewing machine. However, you will still need to do some hand-finishing.
