catnip mouse toy

It’s my cat Maui’s third birthday and I wanted to make him something special…

I had this brown patterned fabric in my stash, and the pattern was just mouse sized… I came up with this catnip-filled mouse, with a string tail, felt ears, and embroidered eyes and nose. I know it was a lot of work just for a cat toy (those ears won’t last for long!), but I think it’s just adorable.

And, most importantly, the birthday boy loves it:

    Vantex, there is no pattern as such; I made one section of an Amish Puzzle Ball and then added a string tail, felt ears, and embroidered eyes and nose.

    PS to all – The felt ears lasted for over a year, even though this mouse is Maui’s favourite toy!
