If you don't know how to do a blanket stitch, I used this tutorial.
Ernie definitely approves! He loves smaller toys that he can hold onto and I also made one without a stick so he could carry it up and down the stairs.
Let me know if you make one... I'd love to know how much your kitty enjoyed it!
