I’m pleased to be back from an unplanned blogging break this week. I have been pretty poorly with migraine and also haven’t felt much like writing. It seems that every time we switch on the news something tragic or terrible is happening around the world and it’s been hard to find my usual positivity.
BUT, this week’s saviour was Toby from I Like Cats who sent me this awesome cat plush cushion to try out! It really did cheer me up to have something fun to make and I was pretty excited to be helping Toby share his new cushion kits for his shop.
The DIY Tea Towel Plush kit can be sewn into a cushion or just used to dry the dishes.
In my opinion everyone needs a cat cushion, but you can always get this tea towel as a gift for friends who don’t sew.
Toby’s cute illustrations and instructions make this such a simple DIY to sew.
My sewing machine is this one from John Lewis which is so easy to use.
As my sewing skills are not super advanced I always pin LOADS!
Once the cat plush was sewn, I turned him right side out, pressed and stuffed!
If you aren’t up for hand sewing the opening shut, you can always use fabric glue. I just did a quick whip stitch with white cotton to close the gap.
What do you think of the finished kitty cushion? I love him!
And Tammy immediately approved!
You can grab your own cat cushion kit in Toby’s Etsy store. I also have a few of the I Like Cats enamel pins which go so well in my collection. I hope you enjoyed this DIY share today!
