It’s a good thing I’m not a cat.

Hi there! How was your weekend? Mine was too fun (and too short). But I finally got to make these fun catnip filled toys for two friends who both just got kitties — and both like purple!


I cracked up the whole time I made ’em.

Until I found out that I’m allergic to catnip. Achoo!!!

If you’d like to try and make some yourself, I pretty much followed the pattern from Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts. The only differences are that I added bells to to the fishing lines, and I made some spares in case the kitties get a little too eager for that catnip, hee hee.

AND!  Check out what I used to hold pins while I made ’em!  A guest check dish from my friend Mon!


I just love it!  It’s from Fishs Eddy — appropriate name, eh?

Achoo!!! Achoo!!
