Happy cat cushion

The cat that got the cream
Isn't she cute with her satisfied smile and Peggy Moffitt-y eyelashes? Imagine her sitting in an armchair, cheering up your abode and making all your guests feel welcome. Perhaps she could become a glamorous ladyfriend for the printed pet cat of a few posts back?

Here's how you can make her out of a piece of vintage fabric (an old pillowcase would do nicely), some black embroidery thread, some stuffing and – the pi├Ęce de r├ęsisitance – a little bit of fringing for her exaggerated eyelashes.

Taken from my trusty Complete Book of Handicrafts (Octopus, 1973)
