Are You looking for a gift idea? How about hand made gift? My idea for a purrfect gift is a cat paw bookmark, which You can make this diy all by yourself! I have prepared a free pattern and instructions so this is going to be much easier than you think. Let’s get started!
List of materials
- A piece of felt in a color of your choice,
- Needle and thread,
- Five pompoms (one large and four small),
- Pencil or pen,
- The template, which you can download below.
Step by step instructions
Step 1: Pattern
Download a template with a bookmark pattern, print it on paper and cut with scissors.
The pattern was obviously inspired by Apollo’s paws ❤
Step 2: Cutout
Have you already chosen the felt color? Cool! Now take the cut out paw and out draw the pattern on the felt (you can use a pencil for this).
Then, following the contour, cut the felt paw with scissors.
Step 3: Pompom
Take the largest pompom. Cut its sides at an angle to make a slightly rounded triangle, as shown in the picture.
Step 4: Jelly beans
Now place the pom poms on the felt so that they form a cat’s jelly beans.
Thread the needle and sew on the pompoms.
Ready! It was very easy and fast project, right?
Handmade gifts are the most enjoyable because they show the recipient that someone is very special to us and we really care. In addition, no cat-lover will be ashamed of such a charming bookmark!
