Pointy kitty softie

I made a third Pointy Kitty. This is my favourite free softie pattern I’ve found online so far. It’s cute and it turns out great every time. Thank you Hillary Lang from Wee Wonderfuls.

This time Pointy Kitty turned out a bit small. I must have added 1/4 inch allowance to the pieces previously but I forgot this time. As warned in the tutorial, turning the cat inside out is difficult though I’d say it’s only the tail that it’s hard. I had no problem with the legs or the ears.

Teapot pincushion

This is the cutest pincushion. The pattern is by Manuela of Join the mood

Warning: the spout and handle were difficult to turn inside out. I had to make the handle twice and make the tube slightly larger. In frustration I forgot to add the embellishments around the middle and top. Printing the pattern at 110% may make it easier to turn.

Still it’s a little pretty teapot!
