Make It Monday! Magnetic Cat Toy For The New American Girl Cat!
To make your own you will need:
-Kunin felt in grey and pink
-A hot glue gun
-A metal paper clip or Canadian Coin ( I tried the US pennies but they did not attach to the cats magnetic mouth)
Step 2- cut out three tear shape pieces of grey felt as shown in the photo above. They only need to be as long as your paper clip.
Step 3- Use your glue gun to glue the paper clip or coin into place.
Step 4- Run a line of glue along the outside edge of the tear drop shape and add another tear drop shape felt piece, pressing gently as you go along the glue edge.
Step 5- Repeat on the other edge and add your other piece of felt.
Step 6- Add a line of glue between the open edges of your felt sides you just attached and pinch them closed. leave open the ends for the nose and tail.
Step 8- Cut two smaller tear shaped pieces of grey felt for the mouse ears, add glue to each side and press them into place as shown in the photos above.
Step 9- Cut a small think strip of felt for the tail, I used grey but you can use more pink if you like.
Step 10- Use a marker to make an eye on either side of your mouse.
Now your mouse is ready for your dolls cat to play with!
Even if you do not have a magnetic cat you can still make these little mice to use with your stuffed animal cats. Just leave out the paper clip!
