Create a fun calico cat with felt and fabric paints!


  • Step 1
    To create the cat, cut shapes from felt pieces. You will need a head, body, tail, nose, ears, paws, etc.

  • Step 2
    With white glue, adhere all of the shapes to a felt background to form the cat.

  • Step 3
    Create calico patches and details using the Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint and glitter glue. To attach the eyes, squeeze out a generous circle of Tulip Paint and place the eyes on top of it. Allow all paint to dry overnight.

  • Step 4
    With scissors, cut out the cat leaving an outline of the background felt on the edge. If desired, cut whiskers from string and attach with glue.
