Adorable. Where can I purchase the rosette or, be yet, can I crochet it?

Bobbieb2

I am in the process of making this out of crochet cotton. Have found that no where does it say to close the opening on the head or to sew it to the body. I can tell from the picture that the opening is closed before sewing it to the head as it would be attached differently if it weren't. This might be helpful to a crocheter that hasn't done a stuffed animal before. I will measure the kitty when it is done and post what the finished size is out of size 10 crochet cotton. I am using black beads for the eyes as the safety eyes seem too big.

It's darling and looks easy. My daughter loves "Hello Kitty". I'm planning to make them for Christmas.
