Catnip Toy How-To
  1. Trace template onto two layers of fabric. Cut out shapes.
  2. Pin right sides together, leaving 1/4-inch seam allowance. Sew seam, and leave 1 1/2-inch opening for filling.
  3. Trim seams with pinking shears.
  4. Turn right side out. Press seams flat.
  5. Stuff with cotton batting or wool scraps until firm. Shape a piece of paper into a funnel, and use it to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of dried catnip or to fill the whole toy with catnip.
  6. Hand-stitch opening closed.
  7. If desired, make fishing line: Thread an upholstery needle with 30 inches of thin sturdy twine, and sew through the seam of the fish's mouth. Tie knot to secure.
