DIY Menswear Mice cat toys

Martha Stewart always has great DIY projects, and these cute Menswear Mice cat toys are no exception! What a great way to recycle that old wool suit jacket, or those outdated dress pants. Corduroy pants and felted wool sweaters would work just as well!

You will need the following supplies:

  • Assorted menswear fabrics (remember, these can come from a woman's closet too!), such as wool suiting, cotton dress shirts, corduroy, and cotton velvet
  • An iron
  • Fusible webbing
  • Sewing machine and supplies
  • Loop turner
  • Poly-fill stuffing
  • Embriodery floss & needle
  • Printed mouse template

Just follow the step by step instructions found here, and make these great mice for your sweet kitty! And since they take such little fabric, why not make a few extra to donate to your local shelter or rescue?
