Here is a simple craft that you can do out of paper or fabric

Here is a simple craft that you can do out of paper or fabric. It is an Origami Kitty made of felt. I chose to do it out of felt because it is affordable, easy to work with and more durable than paper. The completed project can be hung from a cord and used as a necklace or attached to a pin and used as a brooch. If you try it, let me know how it goes.
Felt Origami Kitty

Please follow the images and instructions below.

Note, Additional Step: You can cut out a small rectangular piece of felt, in the same color, and hot glue (or stitch the corners), to clean up the look on the back of kitty. Do this before you string the necklace cord.
