The Ancient Egyptians worshiped cats and mummified their bodies.
The Ancient Egyptians worshiped cats and mummified their bodies. Mummy Cat has clearly strayed in from some similarly antique culture: she's a little otherworldly, and she's fraying just a bit around the edges, but her sweet face and wide, innocent eyes let us know that the intentions of this tiny tomb dweller are entirely benign.

Gently and carefully wind the bandage around the entire body piece in overlapping spirals, flattening it with your fingers as you wind for a neat finish. When you reach the feet, cut off the end of the bandage, leaving about 1/2 inch to fold to the wrong side; glue the last 1/2 inch neatly in place on wrong side of the body front with a dot of craft glue.
Stitch the eyes, again using 2 strands of black embroidery floss. The outline for each eye is almond-shaped and sewn in backstitch - 2 stitches each for the top and bottom line of the eye. Now stitch the pupils using single long vertical straight stitches positioned very close together to make sold black squares (this is called "satin stitch").
Align the 2 body pieces, right sides facing out. Thread the embroidery needle with 1 strand of white embroidery floss, and sew the body together using a small, neat overstitch. Leave the top of the head open, and lightly pad the body with toy stuffing, using a toothpick or matchstick to distribute the padding evenly. Overstitch the gap closed.
