Glue the three 8” discs together one on top of the other. Cut a 3” flat spot on the bottom of the stacked discs so that the cat can stand on edge. Glue a 3” wide strip of black felt around the outside edge of the disc to completely cover. I put the seam on the top so the extra fabric wouldn’t interfere with the flat spot that is used to stand the cat up.
Cut two 16” circles from the black felt. I cut an 18″ square and folded it in half twice (as shown above) so that I was able to cut the circle more easily. I marked 8″ as shown and made one cut to finish the circle. Use scissors to cut wide fringe into the edge of the two circles. Cut the fringe about 3” long and about 1” wide. Be sure that both circles have the same number of fringe as they will be paired up and tied together. I cut both fabric circles at the same time so they would stay matched. Sandwich the disc between the two felt circles
Cut the three pieces of bottom fringe that align with the flat spot at the bottom of the disc to about 1.5”. Glue the fringe flat against the bottom of the disc. This will create a flat surface for the disc to stand on and keep the felt in place as you tie the fringe. Begin tying the front and back fringe together around the disc. Work back and forth from side to side as you tie to keep the felt centered on the disc. You should end at the top of the disc.
Cut out the ears and face parts from the corresponding colors of felt and glue them to the face. When attaching the eyelids, glue just the top curved edge of the lid above the eye. Allow the bottom edge of the lid to curve out and hang free over the eye to add dimension. Glue black buttons to the eyes as shown. Glue a small pleat in the center of the bottom of the ears to give them a shape. Glue the ears to the top of the head about 2” apart.
