1. Cut two ovals out of the white felt. You can decide how big you want to make it. The example above is about the size of a standard business card.

2. Cut two circles for the eyes from the black felt.

4. Once the eyes are sewn in place, use the full back stitch technique to create the line in between the eyes.

6. Add as much or as little cat nip you’d like for your hairy baby.

Note* Make sure you check to see if your pet has any allergies to certain fabrics before making and only let them play with toys under supervision. Cats have a tendency to chock on stuff. Silly babies. 

Happy Crafting!
