Handmade organic catnip toys

I have recently came up with three new series (lines) of catnip toys.

The first one I call the Nipper Napperz. These are 2-in-1 catnip toys, that can be used as a toy, and after your kitten is all tuckered out from the kicking and scratching, she can use it as a blanket and take a nap!  I used the Log Cabin quilting style, 2 layers of polyester batting, and filled them with my very own, extremely potent organic catnip. While sewing the two outer layers of cotton fabric together, I also sewed in the batting to prevent bunching of the batting. Then I machine quilted a square in the center, also to help keep from bunching.  They measure about 7 inches square (17.8 cm).  I currently have two of these available in my studio on Artfire.

The second series are my Zombie kitten catnip toys. Adorable little toys, measuring approximately 5 x 3.5 inches (12.8 x 9 cm), made with cotton fabric, poly batting and filled with my organic catnip. These are available in my Artfire studio, Etsy shop, and in my shop JewelzCreatives on a new website for Canadian Handmade called Zaybia.

The third series are my Peek a Boo catnip toys, which are adorable little "faces" peeking at the world. These measure 5 x 3.5 inches (12.7 x 9 cm) and are made from cotton fabric, filled with poly batting and my catnip.  These can only be found in my Artfire studio.

  1. Very cute, especially the Nipper Napperz. We don't have a kitty right now but one we used to have was a Siamese and retrieved like mad. He loved his little catnip mouse. He'd bring it to you and pat your knee until you threw it for him...again and again. I swear that little guy thought he was a dog.
