Tali got a bunch of new toys all at once and OMG, it’s exciting!!
Here are a ton of DIY cat toys! One of my pet peeves (groan!) is ugly pet toys . I like them to be colorful, cute, and/or funny, and the easiest way to achieve that is to make your own. The great thing about DIY cat toys is they take very little fabric, yarn, etc. and they’re usually quick to make. All of the toys below will make nice gifts for kitties and their people. Have fun!
Kitty fortune cookies.
Easy to sew mouse, fish, & sausage.
Supper fuzzy mouse.
Adorable sushi—nigiri & futomaki.
Felt bird, mouse, & fish.
What a cat! I love how the video captures it talking with a mouth full of toy. I’ve heard our cat Raven do this, but have never seen it.

I love these sweet birds! They’ll make such pretty cat toys, just add a little catnip to the stuffing. You can download the pattern and it’s clear instructions from Spool. So go pick some lovely fabric and give it a go. Spool is a fabric store in Philadelphia that also offers classes. They have yummy fabrics!
