Heartshaped Felt Catnip Mice

I made these cute little heart shaped mice toys for my cats, today. My Krinny was all over them, right away.







To make you will need:

  • 2 sheets of felt in your choice of color. I did a dark grey and light pink.
  • coordinating embroidery floss
  • scissors
  • sewing needle
  • polyfil
  • catnip
Cut out heart shapes for body and smaller heart shapes for the interior body. I free-handed the hearts, instead of using a pattern. Cut out 2 strips of felt for the tail. Stitch smaller heart to larger heart, stitch on eyes with embroidery floss. Stitch front and back of the hearts together using a blanket stitch. I started at the tail and stitched that in first. Halfway through the blanket stitch I added the polyfil and catnip, then I finished stitching the hearts together. Easy project and fun for hours for my cats.
