The 'Electro-Fashion Cat' is an ideal introduction to e-textiles. It should be possible for someone with basic sewing skills to make it successfully by following the instructions. When complete the cats eyes will light up when the right ear is squeezed.

This cat kit contains all the items you need to make the cat (except for a pair of scissors, a needle and pins for securing the felt when sewing).

To make the cat the felt is cut into four pieces following the lines. The LED eyes, battery holder and switch are sewn on to a piece of felt following the stitch lines. Finally the cat is sewn together and stuffed with wadding. Pop the battery in and when the cat's ear is pressed the eyes will light.

    Hi Emily, There are various parts which make up the cat kit, and these come from a number of different suppliers, most of which are in the UK. We also then add the sewable coin cell holder and LED that we manufacture right here at our offices. Overall the goods would be classed as being manufactured in the UK.

    A: Hi Gillian, the cat is around 24cm tall and 14cm wide. Those are approximate because it depends on how/where you measure it.
