Design A Softie | Pen Pouch Birthday Gift

20150529-2015-05-29 15.54.14_blog

After making that first softie for a baby shower, I decided to make a pencil pouch birthday gift for Peppermint.  I followed the same basic design, except that instead of a stuffed animal I turned it into a pen pouch.  And since it’s a pen pouch, I thought I would make him a nerdy cat! :-)

And I included two Uni-ball Signo DX Hello Kitty Limited Edition pens.

I used two pieces of felt for each side, front and back.  The outside is cream felt and the inside lining is gray felt.

  1. Your nerdy cat is so adorable. You did a great job.

  4. I absolutely love him but am sad after reading that you used a die cutting machine to make him... Because I don't have one :( I would buy the die cut pattern from you...
