I'm chugging away with Holiday Shop Creations. The point is to create a lot of gifts for kids to buy for their loved ones for very little cost out of pocket.
So I whipped up 66 homemade cat nip treat toys for the loved fur balls. Cats need love too.
I had leftover material from an old project - so no cost for the project. I ripped open an old throw pillow I didn't want anymore for the fiberfill. No cost there. I went to the Dollar Tree and bought 3 things of cat nip - so $3 out of pocket.
These are simple. I cut 3.5" squares in in the fabric. Put the right side facing each other and sew around the edges, leaving a hole. Turn the fabric inside out, fill with some fiberfill and put a teaspoon of cat nip in side.
You could hand sew the hole shut, but that takes a lot of time so I just machine sewed them shut. It does the job.
I had leftover catnip but managed to get 66 of these done. I could have probably gotten 80 treats in total using 1 teaspoon of catnip with the three packs I got.
So not bad for $3 out of pocket.
