My five year old daughter had another birthday party to attend tonight, so I asked her what I should make for the birthday girl since we are on a tight budget and have slightly more time than money. For the last birthday I had made a really cute cat from “creature crochet,” which I had won from a blog and then had not had time to make anything from it until I handed it to her to pick something for that friend. (Never got a photo of that project.)
This time I decided to ask her in front of the computer with Ravelry available. She suggested a kitten. She said it was because the birthday girl’s name starts with K, but it may also just be because the last birthday gift I made was a cat. She picked a cute cat pattern from Crochet Kitten, the Virgo Kitten. She liked the blue dress it was wearing.
Here is my version, with green button eyes since I did not have any felt or safety eyes on such short notice (and no budget for them either):
