This project makes a set of cats, one sitting and one lying down. Fun tack or glue dot them to the window and they can see inside and outside. The pattern pieces for the lying down cat need to be butted together and taped. Then they’ll just fit on a 9″ x 12″ sheet of construction paper. The body pieces are printed in green so they’ll copy on black paper.
