How-to

1 Cut 2 white cir­cles (2” in di­am­e­ter) for rice; 1 black rec­tan­gle (1.5” x 6.5”) for sea­weed; 2 pieces of green for av­o­cado; 2 pieces of pink for ginger; and 2 pieces of red for salmon.

2 Stitch 1 piece of the red, green and pink to each of the white cir­cles.

3 Us­ing a blan­ket stitch, stitch the ends of the black rec­tan­gle to make a cir­cle.

4 Sew both rice rounds onto the sea­weed. Leave a small open­ing on one side.

5 Fill the roll with the cat­nip or cot­ton bat­ting. Stitch the hole closed and present to your dis­cern­ing cat. These also make a su­per-cute gift for a cat-lov­ing friend!
