Mini Black Cat Brooch

I have a black cat stuff toy which I call by the name "Pancake". I love it so much so I decided to make a mini version of it so I can take it with me on my hat. I will call the small black cat "Poffertjie", which is a traditional Dutch fluffy pancake. 

This is a pattern by LinZi.
