Meet my latest handmade softies: Mama Ariel with kittens Alex and Avery. This kitty trio is made from the same embroidered tablecloth as my doll Millie Darling. The pretty blue appliqué flowers and embroidery have been cut out and applied strategically to adorn these soft toys.
They are all sewn from cotton fabric, with embroidered faces and navy felt eyes. Mama Ariel is about 8 inches tall at her head and 8" wide at her base. The kittens are about 5" tall not counting their ears. These softies are all filled with hypoallergenic Polyfil. The two kittens can be stuffed into Mama's pocket for safe-keeping when playtime is over.
I enjoy sewing this pattern because it is versatile and lends itself to all sorts of patchwork. You can see other versions of my Pocket Kitties here and here. They are made particularly cute with gingham backs on all three cats.
