>New Kitty Toys

>     Hello Everyone!

     I was doing some housecleaning this past weekend and came across some dried catnip. My cats looooove the catnip! I decided to use some leftover yarn to make kitty toys.

    I crocheted the outside cover of the toys. All I did was to chain what I wanted the length to be. I did them in 5 chain, 10 chain or 12 chain. I then did the rest of them in single stitch, circling around, rather than crocheting back and forth. I continued until it created a crocheted “ball”. For the inside of the toy, I cut a square from an old t-shirt, put a little pile of catnip in the middle and tied the square into a little bundle. This I stuffed into the catnip ball and single stitched the ball closed. I wove the end into the ball and tossed one to the cat.
     I think they’ll have fun with them.

The kitties love catnip!

     Hopefully these get lost under the sofa, that’s how I know that they are actually playing with them 😉
