This super cute homemade cat toy is inspired by the Disney movie, Big Hero 6! This cat toy looks exactly like Baymax and is filled with tons of yummy catnip for your cat! If you have a big pair of socks, you can probably make about 6 of them out of each pair. Since they’re inexpensive, you can make a bunch and donate it to all the little kitties at your local animal shelter!
You will need:
- white socks
- fabric glue
- black felt
- a marker
First cut the black felt into two tiny circles and a tiny strip. These are for Baymax’s eyes and mouth.
Next, place the cup upside down over the sock and trace out a circle. Cut the circle out. If you have a big sock, you might be able to cut two or three circles from each sock.
Glue the nice sides of the fabric together along the edges. Leave a little bit of space for stuffing the toy. Let it dry thoroughly before moving onto the next step. Optionally, you can sew the edges together instead of gluing to make it faster and sturdier.
Once the glue is dry, turn it inside out. Stuff the cat toy half way and then put a bunch of catnip in the middle. Stuff the rest of Baymax’s head until you like the shape.
Turn the edges of the whole a little bit in and glue it shut. (You can place a clip there until it dries, use a little bit of hot glue, or sew it shut.)
Glue on Baymax’s mouth, and then his eyes. Let it dry again.
That’s it! You’re done! Isn’t he the cutest??
