Franklin the Fat Cat softie pattern
Who loves fat cats?
If you love fat cats too you're in the right place, because Franklin here is not dainty.
Nope! He's a cuddly fat cat - perfect for hugging!
And he's really easy to make - perfect if you've never made a stuffed animal before.

You Get. . .
9 1/2 inches tall (not counting his ears) and 8 1/2 inches wide (not counting his paws). He's the perfect size for hugging. :-)
This pattern has nice big pieces that are easy to work with, gentle curves, nothing fussy. If you can use your sewing machine, you can make this adorable, huggable cat.
You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.
You'll need. . .
- 1/3 yd. fleece fabric (Cuddle Fleece will make an exceptionally soft cat)
- embroidery thread for face (optional - two 12mm safety eyes for the large face or two 6mm safety eyes for the small face)
- 1 cup plastic pellets for filling (I like Fairfield Poly Pellets)
- polyester fiberfill (I love Fairfield brand Soft Touch Polyfil Supreme)

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern.
For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.
You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.
For example, if you're using this pattern to make stuffed animals which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!
Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
