Lisa the Cat Free Crochet Pattern




If you have a baby shower coming up for someone, a handmade item is a wonderful gift.


I especially designed Lisa the Cat as a crib toy that any baby would enjoy snuggling with.

She's a soft, sweet and most of all safe amigurumi!

You can pick your favorite color combinations and create a unique item!


So if you're looking for an easy amigurumi pattern, today's project is perfect for you.


Lisa the Cat is approximately 11" high.
