This was so much cuter in my head than how it turned out. I still think my son will love it, but I decided to make him another "kitty" present (he really likes kitties!) partly because I don't think this is as cute as I hoped and partly because his present came from an old cashmere sweater that I don't wear because, ironically, the cats put snag holes in it and the everything else is leftover items from previous projects. I really spent no money on this project. It was all time. I made each of the kids 2 gifts and I had to purchase things to make both of my daughter's. So, I bought some supplies to make my son 1 more kitty gift (you'll get to see it, but probably not til after Christmas.)
I like these Monster Stuffies I made 2 years ago so much more! Other items I made from sweaters include:
Or maybe you are looking for other homemade stuffed toys besides this kitty or the Monster Stuffies, you could try these Loom Knit projects: Bunny or Owls
I'm not done using this sweater, so there will be 1-2 more posts with crafts from it!
