Mancat Monday

Happy Mancat Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day so I decided to make a toy for the kitties.I know kickers are very popular and my kitties didn’t have one. I also know that kitties love that crinkle sound and catnip too. Sammy,¬†one of my mancats will model it at the end of the post.

I bought a yard of fabric that was on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $3/yard. It is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day so I don’t know why it was on clearance. 003004Joanie is making sure I have all the supplies

I folded the fabric in half with the print side inside, then I added some batting and cut a strip. I used the sewing machine to sew the edges and left a small space at the end so I could turn it inside out.I stuffed it with plastic bags ( great way to recycle- Walmart ones crinkle best). I added some catnip and hand stitched the opening.

Here is Sammy enjoying it: 006009He is a big boy so it was the right size. I think I will make the next ones shorter for the other kitties.Sammy is hoping he can earn his Cat Scout badge in bunny kicking with these photos.

Have a great day everyone!
