I made this hanging cat decoration several years ago from a pattern in a magazine (not sure which one) and hang it on my front door every October.  It is made with stiff black felt for the face and regular felt for the features.  It is easily hand-sewn and should not be done exactly; it looks better slightly off.  Below is the pattern, which you can enlarge to the size you desire.  Mine is 6-1/2″ wide X 6″ high.  There are 3 parts to the eye – cut 2 of each out of felt.  You can change the color of the features to match any extra felt you have.  Just in case you don’t want to stitch it yourself, you can buy one from my etsy shop, TheTripWitch.
