Easy Gift for a Child- "Color Me Cat"

I have sewn this cat many times for gifts.  I include washable markers.  The child can then decorate it again and again, front and back.  Just throw in the washer and dryer and it is ready for a new look!
Color Me Cat is just 2 pieces of muslin, sewn right sides together, turn right sides out and stuff!
It is really that simple.  You could use any shape.
I have found that Crayola Washable Markers wash out the best.
For older kids, include a permanent marker and it becomes an autograph cat.
My son had fun doing the sample above.


  1. What a fantastic idea! I would have loved that as a kid.

  2. Thanks- my kids love theirs. A nice "low tech" gift!
