Hillary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls designs plush toys which are wonderful indeed, and this free Pointy Kitty pattern is no exception. It's adorable, can be made by hand or machine, and shouldn't take more than an afternoon or two to complete. Remember to use eyes cut from cloth if you make this for a baby or small child: button eyes are a choking hazard.
When you're finished (or if you need some inspiration before you get started), check out the Flickr pool for finished Pointy Kitties and add your own!
