Theodore Swift Cat Sewing Kit – Miadolla
Theodore Swift is a gorgeous sewing kit from the fabulous, Russian Miadolla range and contains everything you need to make a cute, jointed cat teddy who stands approximately 21cm (8 1/4″) tall. Theodore is made from plush fabric, stuffed with traditional wood wool (and a little steel weighting) and has moveable arms, legs and head.
Miadolla say “Being a child, Theodore liked airplanes. He often went flying with his father on the biplane. Just then Theodore fell in love with the sky, the air, the heights! When he grew up, he graduated the air academy. Now Theodore is a real pilot. Every day he carries passengers on a board of his plane. Here are the goggles, here’s the aviator’s helmet, the pilot is ready, let’s go flying!”
The kit contains a pattern, all materials and comprehensive instructions to guide you through the processes to make your cat. The kit also includes the patterns, instructions and materials to make his clothes, shoes and accessories too.
You can sew Theodore completely by hand (back stitch is the main stitch used) or on a sewing machine (there will be a little hand sewing needed). The kit is also supported by some great ‘How to do it’ videos on our website if you prefer more visual ways of learning.
Your kit includes all of the materials you need:-.
- sewing pattern
- detailed instruction with pictures
- plush fabric
- jersey fabric
- cotton fabric
- denim fabric
- faux leather
- cotter pin joints
- sewing threads
- plastic eyes
- sewing needle
- wood wool (for the stuffing)
- steel weighting
Equipment you will need to make your cat:
- A pair of paper scissors
- A pair of embroidery scissors
- Round nosed pliers
- Glue (for the shoes)
- Tailor’s chalk or an air erasable pen (to mark around your pattern pieces)
To complete this project, the maker will need to be able:
. to hand sew or be able to use a sewing machine
. to feel confident working with small, ‘fiddly’ pieces!
*Because this kit contains bead eyes and steel weighting, it is not suitable as a toy.
