After my pillowcase project I pulled out my scrap basket of fabric to dump the scraps in, and Frodo started playing with the pieces as I was putting them in. It got me thinking I should make the fur-kids some pretty mice. Even better if I could add some catnip to them!
All I needed was the fabric, some dried catnip, some tissue paper for stuffing (safe for kitties if they rip open the mice) and some wool for the tails.
A simple job to cut the fabric into circles, then fold them in half right side together, and sew them almost all the way.
A teaspoon of catnip wrapped in tissue was stuffed into the crescent shape, and more tissue stuffed in to fill it.
Happy cats with new toys for almost zero cost. That’s a win-win in my book!
