    Hi All! This beautiful alpaca Cat is for advanced Bear Makers or Sewers. It is intended as an adult collectible. Poco Minuto is a 12” (40 cm) Himalayan “Movement” kitten which means it has 6 joints, an independent neck, armature and is designed to pose in many ways including standing upright, standing on four legs, laying, etc. This cat is so versatile! Also I’m happy to offer a cat pattern, which many of you have been searching for. It is relatively simple to sew although it does require a lot of finessing when finishing the head with needle sculpting, coloring and scissor trimming. To make things even simpler, the ears are sewn by machine as you construct the cat and there are marks for eye placement. This original 10-page pattern for 12” Poco Minuto is designed to fit horizontally on 8.5” x 11” paper. Once printed, pages can be folded in half to fit into a zip lock bag for storage. Let me know if you have any trouble with downloads. This pattern to date included 4 pages of directions with excellent illustrations. You will also find my techniques for creating double leather eyelids, whiskers, eye insertion using a false head back, needle sculpting, sculpting a cat nose, assembling an independent neck and using nuts and bolts for joining. The pattern includes a complete list of materials and a montage of photos for reference. There are four full pages of clearly marked pattern pieces with detailed instructions for cutting, sewing and assembling the kitten. The pattern pieces include seam letters for easy match up, dots for cotter pin or bolt insertion, openings for turning, seam allowance, nap arrows, notches for eye placement and more. This pattern also is easy to resize because I include the stitch line and also outlines of the discs so as you shrink or enlarge the pattern you can see where to stitch and what size discs to use. This Himalayan kitten is designed with alpaca in mind but you could make it in mohair or synthetics in your favorite cat coloration. The recommended fur (alpaca) is 1” but I recommend that you trim down the legs (¾”), feet (1/2”) and face as you get close to finishing your piece. By purchasing this pattern you agree to not sell this pattern. You may sell a cat made from this pattern or a revised version as long as you mention it was made by Mary Wimberley of Mary’s Secret Garden. I have put many years of experience and many hours into the pattern so giving me credit helps me enormously. In fact share on Facebook if you if you feel so moved. ☺ Enjoy! Thanks so much for your support! Let me know if there are other animal patterns you would be interested in purchasing. You can go to my website www.marywimberley.com to look at my photo gallery and see what other animals I have made. Enjoy and please feel free to write with questions while you are constructing. So much love and good luck! Mary of the Secret Garden PS. Check out Teddy Bear Times April/May 2018 to see an article about me!
