Crafting With Cats ~ Easter Special Re-Run ~ Easy Catnip Easter Eggs ~ The Only Kind of Easter Eggs Mew'll Want! #CalorieFree MOL
Supurr Greetings Pawesome Pals
Thanks fur joining fur us fur our Easter Crafting with Cats post. Mew know we have so much fun making all this stuff for feline fun and enrichment, and we hope mew enjoy seeing it and/or making it too!
If mew missed any of our previous CWC posts, stop by the Crafting with Cats Page and see all our past projects, and mew don't have to be an expert in anything to make any of them. Plus we offer workarounds and no-sew projects for those who don't like to sew.

All Crafting with Cats ideas and creations are of our own design and we share them fur purrsonal/home use only.
So purrlease do not copy fur commercial/resale purrposes.
1. & 2. We're making six eggs - one each of course, and here's our fabric choices fur our eggs
3. Cut out your egg shapes - ours are approx 7" tall by 5" at the widest part prior to sewing
4. Check with optional bunny to make sure they meet FULL BUNNY approval
5. Cut out lining fabric and place either side of your patterned fabric
6. Pin eggs together ready fur sewing [right sides together]
7. Sew, either by hand or machine, leaving a gap fur the stuffing at the bottom
8. Your egg/s should now look something like this
9. Turn fabric right sides out and get FULL BUNNY approval before continuing
10. This is one side of our eggs
11. This is the other side
12. Now stuff with catnip - we used our homegrown, organic primo nip in our eggs. And used a ratio of 1/4 stuffing/wadding to 3/4 catnip to fill them - that way the eggs are springy but are really stuffed to the brim with the primo stuff making sure they're extra fragrant and delicious, as nopurrdy wants a BAD EGG! MOL
13. Once your eggs are fully stuffed, hand sew the final part of the seam together
14. Mew should have something that now looks like this, with FULL BUNNY approval if mew had a bunny on-site snoopervising
Now we're at the critical stage of testing, so what did Smooch think?
As mew can see there was no stopping him, the eggs were amazing and Smooch said, "Dudes these Easter Eggs are eggstraspecially nip'a'licious!"
In fact, the P.A. had to remove him from the room as he went a little wild and refused to share with anypurrdy else, I think that's because the P.A. used a special combo of Catnip and Catmint that we affectionately refer to as the Psychedelic Puma Blend - OOPS - so maybe not fur newbies like youngMelvyn!
So there mew have it, straight from Smooch; catnip eggs are the best, make some, get some, try some this Easter and don't miss out on the fun!
* * *
And that pawesome furiends furry sadly brings us to the end of our Easter Crafting with Cats re-run post, we do hope mew liked it, and we look forward to sharing more crafting exploits from BBHQ in the future!
And if there's anything mew'd like us to make, leave a comment and we'll do our best next time we're here.
We'll be back on the morrow with our fab Easter Selfies and do hope mew can join us then.
