Item details

Meet Pip – a member of the Dress Up Bunch.

I’m not sure if Pip is a girl cat or a boy cat – I didn’t check under the tail. :-)

I do know that Pip loves to play dress up – unlike any cat I’ve ever met!

Pip has a weighted tail and paws for excellent flop, and arms and legs that will go in any direction for good play and easy dressability – so much fun to play with!

What You Get

full-size printable pattern pieces – no enlarging needed
detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right
links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to complete the project
make the cat and the snazzy collar – you get the pattern and instructions for both

What You’ll Need

For Pip

1/2 yard fabric
scraps of contrasting fabric for optional muzzle applique (useful if you’re making Pip from fur, like in the second photo)
scrap of felt for nose
embroidery thread for mouth and whiskers
2 12 mm safety eyes
plastic pellets
polyfill stuffing

For the collar (optional)

scrap of fabric
scrap of felt
embroidery thread
1 9mm snap or a small bit of Hook & Loop Tape


Pip is 18 inches tall from head to toe, 11 inches tall when sitting.


I designed Pip to be very easy to make – a great project for beginners. All the parts are nice and roomy for easy turning and stuffing, they all tuck easily inside the body for the final assembly, and there’s a nice straight back seam for turning and stuffing that’s easy to sew up by hand. If you know how to use your sewing machine you can make Pip.

Pip is a digital PDF pattern, so you’ll receive it by email as soon as your order is complete.

Make Pip today! Then take a look at some of Pip’s friends in The Dress Up Bunch. They all welcomed Pip into the group right away – even loaning Pip their favorite outfits for a fun dress up party! Everyone in the Dress Up Bunch wears the same size clothes and they love to share. :-) You can see other Dress Up Bunch dolls and outfits in the additional photos.

Like everything at Shiny Happy World – you can sell items you make with this pattern, as long as you are making them yourself. :-)
