DIY Felt Play Food: Multi Grain Crackers
Cut two 2” circles of tan felt.
1
Split black 6 strand embroidery floss in half.
2
Thread your needle and knot the end.
3
Add small black stitches throughout one circle, mimicking poppy seeds, then tie off at the back.
4
Add small stitches in a couple more colors. I used a pale yellow and light tan.
5
Using a whip stitch, start sewing the two circles together.
6
Leave a small opening large enough to stuff your cracker.
7
For a kid’s play set, fill with poly-fil stuffing. For a cat toy, fill with catnip. Then sew up the opening!
8
Add one stitch in the middle of your cracker. Pull the ends tight and tie off 3 times in the back, then trim ends.
9
Repeat that stitch 5-7 times.
10
Add more fun felt food to complete your set!
Tip: if you made cat toys store them in a Ziploc while not in use to prolong the catnip scent.
Disclaimer: swallowing small strings can be dangerous for cats. Always monitor their play time and put away toys when not in use.
