This cat is just as unfriendly as all the ginger cats I know – always looking for a fight!
Find the free “ginger cat felt handbag” pattern here.
You need a small piece of felt – but you can resize the pattern according to you liking and needs.
I cut the face double – to make it a bit firmer – you can also iron some vilene on the inside if you want it more stiff in case you are making a big cat handbag.
I used only blanket stitch with thin crochet cotton to sew it together, so it is a 100% handmade .
The braided string for the shoulder band was made of the same crochet thread used for the blanket stitch.
I used 24 strings in two different shades of orange to make the braid
If you do not have anyone close by to help – join the cotton with a wooden peg to something – that will hold it in place while you do the braiding.
Join the braided shoulder band with small stitches to the side of the handbag.
Join the face with small hand stitches to the handbag.
This ginger cat felt handbag can also by a project for your kids during the holiday – or make it as a gift for someone.
My kids just loved it!
