Adorable Cat Bean Bag

embroidered or painted face

Door Stop or Toy This darling bean bag cat is easy to make and suits many purposes. Use holiday fabrics to make one for your favorite holiday. Fun for any child as a bean bag toy (embroider the face and sew on the head if used by a small child). Made with bright fabrics, it will add a splash of color to any room. The body is filled with dried beans for weight and stability, which means it makes an excellent door stop. Our free pattern has two faces to choose from. The face can be embroidered or painted on. We appliqued the eyes and nose, using iron-on adhesive (also called fusible web).

To learn how to use iron on adhesive, go to Applique Lesson: Fusible Web.

Next, fold the fabric in two, so that your piece is 22.5" x 12". Place pattern pieces onto the fabric and cut through both layers.

Pattern pieces include a 1/4" seam allowance.

You will now have two of each piece. Cut a second set of ears.

NOTE: If you are using a contrast piece for the face, cut just one head from your main fabric. Cut the second head from the contrast piece.
