Pattern Description:

Einstein and Sugar Plum are two adorable little cats but with paws that move and a tail that swishes these two might have a little attitude.
I'm not sure if they caught a critter or if they are toying with me.
I'll let you decide.
Cats will be cats!
And girls love them!

Impress your friends with this funky little bag. It looks like you slaved over it but in reality the majority of embroidery work is machine stitched but looks like handwork.

Just the right size for her iPod or DS. She may not need a place to carry her lipstick but she certainly does not want to get caught stuck without her games or music. Who would suspect the cat holds her games. Don't let the cat out of the bag and no one will guess.

The approximate size is 6'x 8" x2" with a 9 inch zipper closure at the top. A stuffed tail hangs off the bag and stuffed paws to grab for her toy. The lining of the bag has been fused by an adhesive sheet (Heat N Bond is what I used) to an underlayer of fabric resulting in a sturdy stand-on-your-own bag.

Color coordinte to her pet cat.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximate size 6 x 8 x 2


  • Large scraps for body of bag. Scraps for facial features, arms, paws and tail
  • Heat and Fuse Adhesive sheets
  • Black embroidery floss
  • Small amount of batting or stuffing material
  • 9 inch zipper
  • Optional D-ring and swivel

You Will Also Need:
