    I've been teaching my DGD (8 yrs old) to sew & she wanted to make something for her little cousin. We saw one of these as a quilt shop decoration and both loved the idea. So I went back & counted the squares & made a pattern for her. We used 2-1/2" squares from stash. With Christmas projects beginning, I thought some of you may like the idea for easy gifts. They can be decorated with fancy collars and embroidered eyes. (No button eyes for the little ones, tho, if they are young enough to chew on them!) Here are some of the ones we made.

    No I haven't. Would love a cute cat pillow, but most of the ones I saw were just cut-out panels. If you see a quilted one, let me know.

    Very cute, I looked at the pattern. It would be cute for a baby shower if you used scraps from the baby quilt you also make!

    I bought the cat pattern at a guild meeting. It's called, My Cat, Cali (a depression era toy) and was designed by Kathleen Ackley. Here's a website:
    http://www.bykate.com/bykate-products.html

    The horse is almost like the scotty, but doesn't have the ears and has longer (thinner, too) I think legs. A friend gave my granddaughter one and I added a yarn mane and tail and felt ears. The woman who made it heads a church group that makes quilts and the horses are to comfort kids. (My granddaughter who is now 10 has way too many stuffed toys, but when we went to Disney World this summer, the horse was packed!)

    I can definitely see the horse working with yarn mane and tail. That would be a cute idea.
