To make a catnip mouse you'll need:
- dried catnip,
- cardboard pattern for body and ears,
- scrap fabric,
- marker, and
Sew around the ears, leaving the bottom open for turning. I sew these by hand and use a small back stitch. Cut the ears and body out, leaving about 1/4" to 1/2" seam allowance. Before sewing the body, we want to make the tail. Decide how long you want the tail to be and cut 9 strands of yarn (I chose red and green to match the fabric). Tie them together at the top with a strong knot, then braid them tightly together, tying them at the bottom.
This little mouse will provide your cat hours of fun play time! Stop in toCreativeCritters to see my other catnip toys, or purchase some garden grown organic catnip for your furry friend!
