Sure you could head out and buy your own cheap cat toy, but why not make your very own stuffed cat toy? This way you will not only save a few bucks but as well you will feel proud knowing that you made your cat’s toy by hand. If you are interested in making your own stuffed cat toy, here is how you go about it.
How to do a Stuffed Cat Toy
So to make your own stuffed cat toy, you want to start by getting all the materials that you are going to need. This includes yarn, a crochet hook, and a yarn needle. To stuff the cat you can use almost whatever you want but fiberfill and quilt batting will work best.
Now to get the pattern you need two large rectangles for the body, four slender rectangles for the front and back legs, two squares for the cat’s head, and two small triangles for the cat’s ears. The tail is going to be crocheted differently so wait for that.
Start On The a Stuffed Cat Toy
Now to start on the stuffed cat toy, you want to crochet all the parts together, and you can create the cat’s face by stitching on simple eyes. Remember that you don’t have to go into detail here because your cat is certainly not going to care, you just basically want to make sure that it is all going to stay together so it will not end up falling out all over the place.
Now once you have all the different pieces stitched together you want to create a long tail for the body. To do this you just want to crochet a long chain stitch cord and then come back with simple crochets to the body. Now you have finished your stuffed cat toy, although you can certainly add on more finishing touches if you like.
This is very quick and easy to make, and not the only cat toy that you can make on your own either. There are lots of other cat toys that are lots of fun to make if you are interested, and it is a great way to spend your time and your cat will definitely be thankful. Make a couple different toys so that your cat will always be entertained and having lots of fun.
Of course if you do not have the time or effort for this you can just spend a couple bucks and get your cat a toy.
