My daughter loves cats. She has three of them: Jack, Ginger and Bentley. Naturally, I can't leave them out at Christmastime. Even the little furry friends love to get presents, too!
I made the kitties some little mice to play with that have their favorite ingredient in them- catnip! The mice are made from some old felted sweaters (I have a quite a large stash). I sewed the little mice bodies and then added some yarn for their tails, eyes, whiskers and little pink ears to make them look like real mice! By mistake I sewed the brown mouse sweater inside out; that's why it looks sort of funny. I don't think the cats will mind. It adds to the whimsy look of the little mouse.
I think they came out really cute. And did the kitties like them? They loved them!
