"A new challenge for 2013" Valentine Mouse Kitty Toys. Have been reconstructing clothing and the belt and bow on the velvet dress was enough to make a couple kitty toys for our sons two kitties. The belt was a fabric tube so with rolled up quilt batting I stuffed into an old knee high before pushing it in the tube. The bow was enough to make the heart mouse body that I changed the design outline with a heart shape since I wanted these to be for Valentine's Day.

Thanks. Might have tossed the belt but looked at it and took it apart. I remember a cutie told me not to toss out those knee highs and one pair came in handy for to stuff the tubes.

As close to grandkids as I'm getting for now. They take the other toys to bed with them that I've made so will be interesting to see what they do with these. lol

Yes. May have tossed that sash/belt if it wasn't for your challenge.

Thank you. Can see the kitties rolling around with the toy between their paws. I still have the whole bottom skirt to do something with. I'm thinking something for Christmas next year.
