This would make a cute door stop for a childs, or even a teenage girls room. Add a sandbag or similar type weight to the bottom before seaming it together and it should do a great job. I prefer using safety eyes, or embroidering or crocheting them to using felt. I find it lasts longer that way.

This is SO cute. I love my kitty, and I'm 100% making one of these.
