Pusheen the Cat Applique

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
approx. size: 2.5”W x 3”H
…but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Gray (10yds)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Felt: Black & Pink
*Embroidery Floss: Black
*Tapestry Needle
*Hot Glue

PATTERN NOTES
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you sl st from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.

SPECIAL STITCHES
 Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

TAIL with gray
This is done in the back loops. Attach yarn on the 11th st, sc, ch5, sc on 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 3 chs, sl st in same st you attach
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.
EARS with gray
This is done in the back loops and all in the same st. Attach yarn on the 2nd st, sc, ch2, sl st on 2nd ch from hook, sc in same st
F/O, secure and weave in the ends. Repeat the same process on the 28th st.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing or gluing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best. (Most people like to use the yarn in the end from the finish pieces to sew them in place but I personally like to use matching thread).
     Tip...I like to first trace the body part I’m going to be working on in a white paper and make a stencil of what I need (any spot in particular). Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     STRIPES ON TAIL & SPOTS…using black felt cut out stripes and 2 half circles. Glue them in the position you like best.
     EYES…using embroidery floss, embroider the eyes between round 1 and 2,
     MOUTH…embroider it using the floss right between the center of the eyes.
     Using the embroidery floss, embroider 3 stripes above the eyes and the whiskers on the side.
     LEGS…embroider them in the position you like best.
    Using pink felt, cut out a small heart and glue it in the position you like best.
     Embroider arms right next to the heart making it seem like she’s holding it.
     OPTIONAL…using blush and a q-tip, add a tiny little bit of blush right underneath the eyes.
