1970’s Cat & Dog Softies

April 25, 2008 at 8:10 pm 3 comments

There is a growing movement of crafters and artists creating soft, stuffed objects these days. Some of the creations are inanimate objects rendered soft via fabric or yarn. Many are animals also made soft and most times squishy. These creations go by the name softies, stuffies, plush and any other number of descriptive nomenclature. But just as many movements past, this is not a new idea. I found a very cute pattern for a stuffed felt cat and dog in The Encyclopedia of Crafts, that seventies craft book 24 volume series I have previously sited. Download the pdf pattern here. I hope someone makes one of these cuties and shares the photos with us. Don’t make me do it. I have way too many projects as it is. Enjoy.
