Gazing Cat Applique Pattern

wall hanging, pillow, or quilt block

♥ cat body is stuffed ♥

page 1 of 2

Measures 16" x 16"


Stuffing Adds Dimension

The body of this cat is slightly stuffed, giving it a nice 3 dimensional look. Use your favorite applique method. If you want to hem under the edges, add 1/4" around all pieces. For an easier method, use our Fusible Web to quickly and easily attach pieces, then use paint, hand or machine stitching to further secure the edges. I recommend satin stitching.

Machine or hand embroidery adds nice detail to the landscape. The flowers for this piece (and shown as close-up on the left) were created by freemotion machine embroidery - quick and easy!

For more information on using fusible web (also called iron on adhesive), go to:
Free Applique Instruction.

Applique Pressing Sheet  Pieces will stick to one another - not to the sheet. Very nice for making appliques. For more instruction on using these sheets, go to: Free Floral Applique Pattern

Go to our NOTIONS page to see samples of these items, or to purchase these items.

Spray Starch: to stiffen pieces - helps when sewing them into place. This is only needed if you are not using iron-on adhesive (fusible web).

Note: all seams are 1/4 inch. Always iron between steps.

Sewing Supplies: scissors, quilting pins, large sewing ruler, fabric marking pencils, seam ripper
hint: quilting pins are easier to use than regular pins; a tupperware box works well as a supply box.
