I made a kitty for my downstream in the cocoa swap. It's very soft. I changed the final design just a little, but I think it came out really cute. It's a little more "denim" blue than the photo shows, and the paws are blush pink.
My daughter asked me to make one for her. It really wasn't hard, it just takes time to make all of the little pieces. Next time I'll try doing it in the round. I got the pattern from etsy, if you want to check it out.
