Laura had a friend once that said that all cats fell into three categories: String kitties, ball kitties, and catnip kitties... This toy has all three!
This kit will walk you, step by step, through the process of making your own needle felted, holiday/Christmas ornament catnip, cat toy! The instructions are for the blue / star toy, but can be adapted to make the others shown. Choose your own colors during checkout. Materials make two small cat toys.
- Small bag of dried catnip
- core wool
- finish wool in desired colors
- 5 x 5" eco friendly foam
- 2 needle felting needles
- satin cord
- Emailed tutorial
- packaged in a biodegradable cellophane bag
You will also need:
- large eye yarn needle
- a space away from the cat to make the toy. Or not ;)
** not recommended for small children.

Frequently Asked Questions
We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)
Custom and personalized orders
The ability to customize, personalize orders is the number one reason we work mostly on a "made to order" basis. We want you to have everything just as you need/want it! We understand that this makes our shipping times slower, but we hope you will agree that we are worth the wait :)
Does your roving come in one, continuous piece?
Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.
Why is the shipping so high? Can you fix it?
It's a long, convoluted answer having to do with the fact that we offer variations of weight in our batts and other items. We pay the extra shipping on larger batts, but we have no way of setting the shipping lower on the sample sizes, so we have to meet somewhere in the middle --which is often WAY too much if you are ordering a quantity of sample batts.
And yes. We can fix it, just message us. Or.. check out and leave us a note reminding us to refund your excess shipping. Either way, we understand. We hate overpaying for shipping too :D
You forgot my felting needles. Will you send them?
If we forgot them, of course we will :D
But first... take a peek on the side of the foam. 99.99% of the time, they are there, just overlooked.
Why does it take 10-14 days to mail a batt?
We dye a very large proportion (60-75%!!) of our wool, Firestar and Silk. We're really proud of the number of colors we offer-- and we only have plans to do more. We do this because it the work we love to do, it's one of many things that we think make our work worthwhile, special. Additionally, we do not want our batts sitting in inventory, compacting from lack of use. And then... what if you want to customize the batt? We do that too :D
We make our batts to order because we make them for you— and we make a LOT of them, so there is usually a line when you order as well. We think they are worth the wait and hope that you will too. Naturally, if you need something faster, let us know. We work magic, that's what we do :D

Just wonderful! And super fast shipping. I am going to make it a cat toy, because the catnip is powerful and we do not need cats climbing the tree. :) I have been intrigued by needle felting for a while, and this is a great intro.

Fast shipping. Clear cut instructions in a kit format. Doesn't get any better than that
