How To: Catnip Pillow

So Mandi came up with this new project to make huge catnip pillows for my cat, so not only can they play with it, it's big enough for them to sleep on. Here is how to make them.

What you will need:

- Polyfill
- 2 pieces of 12x12 material (any pattern of your choice)
- sewing machine
- pinning needles
- catnip

Step 1:

Cut out 2 pieces of 12 x 12 fabric, and iron the pieces.

Step 2:

Pin the 2 fabrics along the outer edges with the inside facing outwards

Step 3:

Sew 3 of the outside edges together, and 1/2 of the last edge leaving 6 inches of open fabric (this is where we will need to fit the polyfil inside)

Step 4:

Turn the pillow inside out (so now the proper side of the fabric is showing)


Stuff the pillow with the polyfill, and while doing that sprinkle the catnip inside all throughout the pillow.

Step 6:

Hand stitch the opening of the pillow together with tiny whip stitches.

And there you have the finished product! A beautifully sewn canip pillow that your animal will enjoy!
