So, today I will mostly be making some cat toys for our lovely moggy Millie using this rather dodgy looking bag of cat nip! When I bought this from Pets at Home recently, I could only imagine what would happen if I were to get pulled over by the Police on my way home!
The tutorial for these lovely cat critters I stumbled upon here. They're really easy to make and the finished critters are lovely. Millie has already discovered the mouse that I have made her. I had to wrestle this back to put away for Christmas (although I may just have to make another one to keep her amused for the time being..... it may be worth it to keep her off the tree decorations!).
So this is what I intend on making more of today - some cat-nip filled toys for her to cause havoc with come Christmas day. I will fill her Christmas paw stocking ( that I wrote about a few weeks back) with these toys and sweets and she'll be in her element for some time.
The critter above is my take on a pyjama Wrasse. We have one of these in our marine tank called Mr Jim-Jams) that Millie tries to ambush every time he swims past - much to his (and our) amusement! I am going to create lots of different fish (Including a replica of our Clown fish - Mr Bumbles).
The link also shows how to make a mouse and a bird (although I have not made one of those yet) so if you have a cat, why not make one of these lovely critters and upload your picture onto the EDiS! Flickr group.

After these little creatures, I am going to get on with making some traditional style bauble felt decorations - tutorial to follow :O)
