2 Felt Cat Toys (Fish and Dinosaur)




About: Just a girl who spends her days crafting! I love creating new things out of duct tape, clay, or anything that can be made into something new!

I was excited when I came up with the idea to make felt cat toys! In total, it took me about an hour and a half to make both cat toys. I hope you enjoy this Instructable!

Step 1: Supplies

- Felt

- Embroidery Thread

- Fluff

- Scissors

- Sewing Needle

- Pattern

- Catnip (Optional)

Step 2: The Fish!

I started by making a template that I could cut out and use as a pattern. Then, on one side of the fish I drew the outline of the fish bones.

Step 3:

After threading the needle, I started to embroider the fish. Only do this on one piece of felt. Follow the pictures to learn how to the stitch.

Step 4:

Next, place the two sides together. Using the same stitch, sew the two pieces together. Once I finished sewing the tail, I stuffed it with the fluff before finishing the rest. Remember to leave a small opening to add the fluff. If you are adding catnip, now is the time to add it. Sew the opening closed.

Step 5: The Dinosaur!

I started my drawing out a dinosaur template. Then I cut the body out green felt.

Step 6:

When cutting the spikes, I made it so it would be one piece instead of individual triangles. I continued on by cutting circles for the eyes and a small heart.

Step 7:

When sewing on the eyes and heart, I sewed a cross in the middle of them. When attaching the spikes, I used sewing pins to keep it in place.

Step 8:

I sewed the dinosaur together using the running stitch. Leave a small opening and stuff it with fluff. If you are adding catnip, add it now. Sew up the opening and you are done.
