Catnip Star
Supplies:
Red and green felt squares (each square makes two stars)
Ribbon or yarn.
Needle and thread (or sewing machine)
Dried Catnip
Star Pattern
Scissors
Straight pins

Steps:
Step 1. Cut out star pattern and pin to two layers of felt. Cut out pattern
Step 2. Take a 8” piece or ribbon or yarn, fold in half, and pin in-between two pieces of felt at one of the star points.
Step 3. On a machine or by hand, sew the two pieces of felt together, leaving one "V” open. I like the look of a slipstitch, but you can use any type of stitch you want.
Step 4. Stuff star full of catnip, making sure you can close "V” to sew-up.
Step 5. Sew up opening to complete ornament.
Place a nice piece of fleece as a tree skirt, or use your kitty’s favorite blanket and finish off with a sprinkle of dried catnip.
