Crochet Aizen The Kitty Applique

Aizen the Kitty Applique
I made this little kitty applique after my not so little kitty (anymore) Aizen. I figured I make so much for my chihuahuas that my kitty deserved something too, but unlike my chihuahuas he hates sweaters. He hates them so much the one time I did try and put him in one he kept falling over and refused to walk, stand up, or just plain would not move at all. So needless to say it lasted maybe 2 minuets. No sweaters for my kitty. I thought this applique was a great idea and I could just sew it on to one of the blankets he loves so much. Next time maybe ill try making him a stuffy he likes those too.
So this pattern using a G hook and caron simply soft makes a great small soft applique you can sew on to anything. Really anything hats, mittens, scarfs, blankets, and so many more. The sky is really the limit with this cute applique. Hope you enjoy!
Aizen as a baby isn't he a cutie
