Meet Franklin - an exceedingly huggable fat cat. You can make him!
The finished cat is 9 1/2 inches tall (not counting his ears) and 8 1/2 inches wide (not counting his paws). He's the perfect size for cuddling. See the final photo for a picture of a customer-made Franklin with an actual kid for scale. :-)
You'll receive a full-sized pattern with complete instructions and loads of step-by-step photos - plus links to videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project, from sewing curves, to stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole. You can totally do this!
The cat has instructions for an embroidered face (safe for babies!) and an alternate (larger) face that uses fun safety eyes (which are, ironically, not safe for babies). You can see the second face option on the grey cat.
Expect to take a few hours to make your fat cat. You'll also need about 1/3 yard polar fleece, some embroidery thread, possibly some safety eyes, plastic pellets and polyester fiberfill.
You'll receive a link to download your pattern as soon as payment is received. Delivery at the speed of light!
Another great pattern from ShinyHappyWorld!

Loved this pattern. Enlarged it to make a very big, huggable kitty for my 2 year old grandson. Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. It took me about 1.5 hours to complete the project.

Thank you very much for this pattern. I actually made it yesterday and found all your instructions/tips and pattern pieces perfect. And I have to say my FatCat is wonderful.
