Cat Toy in 20 Minutes

I like cats and I have got 2 cats and now they have 7 kittens . They are bored, because I must go to school so I can't play with them. So when I had a little time I made a toy and I played with them. They very like this toy and play with it. I hope if you make your cat love it too.

Step 1: What You Need?

What you need : - A bowl
- Warm water in the bowl

- Soap

- Towel

- A stick

- Wool ( I used two colour)

- A needle

- 24 inch yarn

Step 2: Make the Ball

Grab a little bit of wool and pull apart the strands. Wrap it up in a little ball shape should be. Then with a soap lathering your hands. Grab the ball-shaped hands with soap and wool begin rounded. First, as if it were a flat, but if you will skillfully rounded round. If it is too small for even a small wool wrap it around and continue to rounding. If the ball is ready to put aside a little time to dry. My ball is 1 inch big.

Step 3: Set Up the Toy

First, cut 24 inches of yarn and append it with a needle. Tie a knot in one end of the yarn. Then grab a needle and pierce the ball. Then reverse thrust is transferred to the ball of the needle. So for sure it stays in the yarn. Then you repeated the needle the other end of the thread to tie your wand. Now we are left with is just to play the cats.

    Yes, if you want more tutorials about how to felt a ball, you need to write it into the finder ( into the google or the insturctables searcher) . There is a link about felt balls. I hope i can help you.


    Yeah. The best cat toys are the ones that you make yourself. My cats will reject anything that I buy from the store.
