The response probably comes late here for this inquiry - but when I saw request for catnip mouse it made me think of a darling pattern I just bought. Look at the Simplicity 4765. It has cat beds, furniture throws that are large cat heads and there is a darling little mouse that would be just adorable for catnip. I love watching the cats putting stuff like that in their mouth and marching off with it, lol!

When I have polar fleece left over from other projects I just cut a little oval, teardrop, rectangle, or square shape out of it, sew on the regular machine or the serger leaving a little opening, put in a big pinch of catnip and maybe a small jingle bell, and sew closed. Wally world has packets of organic catnip-----one pouch will make many, many cat toys. You don't really have to fill up the toy-cats like very small very light toys to play with. This past Christmas the one thing everyone asked for was cat toys! I don't add stuffing, whiskers, eyes, etc., as these are not safe ingredients for many cats. Rub the catnip a little bit between your fingers as you add it to the toy-it brings out that inspiring and intoxicating aroma!

I made this cute needle holder recently, but I think the pattern could be easily modified to be a cat toy. I found it at my local quilting shop. :)
