I just love this little kitty!  And making them is pretty easy, too.

I got the pattern from the book "Gifts Kids Can Make" (find it here: http://www.amazon.ca/Gifts-Kids-Make-Sheila-McGraw/dp/1895565359/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1206913620&sr=8-6 )

They don't make good toys for little kids - it'd be really easy for a kid to pull the yarn out - but I find that older kids like them, as do adults (I know *I* do!).  I've made lots of these over the years, but didn't think to take pictures of them all!

Here's the one I made for myself:


Bird's eye view:


(Yes, that is a crescent moon on her forehead.  Hello, my name is Becky, and I'm a Sailormoon-aholic.)

The book isn't too bad as far as pattern books go.  There's a pattern for some little yarn birds that are pretty cute, and I still want to try making that basket on the front.  Other patterns inside might appeal to lots of folks on Craftster, though there are some in there that made me scratch my head.  At any rate, it was well worth the money for me for the cat pattern alone.

Your cat is so cute! I love it. I love the Moon above its eyes. The eyes are great they go along great with the body color. Good Job!
