Easy Catnip Toys Tutorial with Template

How's your sewing for our furry friends project going??? 
I've got a fun tutorial that is a perfect scrap buster for you that would be great for May's Project!

Catnip Toys

They are so fast, fun and easy to make! Are you ready???

Supplies Needed:
Fabric Scraps, Thread, Stuffing, Catnip, Sewing Machine, Pinking Shears
Optional - Embroidery floss, ribbon for enhanced features

Print and cut out your template. The template includes shapes and suggestions for a fish, mouse and bird.

With your fabric folded wrong sides together, trace your template shape onto your fabric scrap. Using a disappearing ink pen would be ideal if you have one.

Stitch right on top of your pen marks around your shape, leaving a small opening for stuffing.

 Trim around your shape using pinking shears.

Stuff the toy with a small amount of polyester fiber stuffing and add your catnip.

 Sew the opening closed, and you're done!
Repeat again and again!

Quick, easy, cute and a great way to give back this month!

Adorable, what a great idea!! My sister is the one with the cat, but she would most certainly accept gifts of catnip. ;)

Great idea to simply sew around and pink the. Cute and practical!

What a great idea! I think these would make a great gift for my next door neighbor she has lots of cats. ;)

Love not having to turn them right side out!

Another super easy shape to make is just a long somewhat thin rectangle. That way cats can hold them in their front paws and kick them with the back. My sister's cat LOVES "kickers".
