DIY Upcycled Cat Toy (Menswear Mouse Toy)

So I end up with small odd shaped scraps of material like all the time. Not a whole lot of course (because I upcycle them into the bags) but still, the smaller remnants accumulate eventually. (The usual story that leads me to upcycling materials into something other than bags or clothes)

I found this project idea from MarthaStewart.com after searching for something smaller to do with them and finally got around to actually doing it.

It's a menswear mouse toy for your cats! or snakes? Hey maybe. Okay probably not because they don't really play, or do they?


Adorable right? and not to mention kind of easy to do as the tutorial is pretty simple to follow. Mine was a plaid blazer for the mouse body and then a denim underbelly with a brown gingham cotton tail.

I made mine fast though. I mean I didn't even add eyes (I couldn't find my beads) and its ears are different than in the tutorial but my cats loved it nonetheless.

Now to make another mouse toy so each cat has their own (there's two, Ajax and Athena) because sharing is no fun.
