Birthday Bellybutton Kitty

I crocheted this kitty for my bellybutton-loving daughter for her 2nd birthday.  Unable to find the perfect cat pattern, I used one I found online for a stuffed puppy, then searched for other patterns for cat ears and a long tail.  If you can crochet rounds, making little stuffed lovies like this one isn't hard, and you probably don't even need a pattern if you can figure out the size of the shapes you want.  After that, it's just a matter of stuffing each form, then sewing them all together with your yarn and a large blunt needle.  For the eyes, I have a jar full of mismatched vintage buttons that my mom sent with me when I left home, and these black flower buttons in different sizes were perfect.
