Making the Head
Get your old sock and fill it with paper forming a circle. Make sure it is well packed that it is somehow hard enough. Cut the rest of the sock and put it aside. Sew the opening of the head.
Making the Body
Get another sock and fill it again with paper. Give it an oval shape. Pack it well also, it must be hard enough like the head. Sew the opening.
Making the Tail
In making the tail, you can use the piece of socks you cut off from the one you used from the head part. Sew one end first. Then fill it with a rag. Form it into a tail that is just proportional to the size of the body. Sew the other end.
Putting it Together
Sew all the parts you have together. Make sure you sew it well so that it would not rip apart easily when your kitten starts to play with it.
Add the buttons to make a face. Sew it or use glue to attach it to the head. Cut out ears from the cardboard and glue it to the head. You now have a homemade kitten toy.
