In the Designer's Words: "We have 3 kitties who love to play so I live to get them new toys. I thought the olyfun would be great because it wouldn't fray. I put catnip in it and added some string. It was a success because they love it!
My cats love the rat tail cord - and catnip is always a hit.  The thinner the strips are the easier they are to knot.  this is similar to a no sew blankets.  The cats like the fringe too!"
Learning how to make cat toys is a great way to stay on-budget while still spoiling your favorite feline rotten. Plus, your kitty cat will love watching you make the toy before being allowed to bat it around. This No-Sew DIY Cat Toy is created out of Oly Fun fabric, but does not require any sewing. All you need to do to learn how to make cat toys in a flash is tie the fabric together, much like those popular no-sew fleece blankets. If you want to add added interest to this adorable DIY craft, you can fill it with cat nip to really get the kitty party started.
