Catnip Fish

While preparing items for my booth in the one craft fair I participate in each fall, I like to make a basket full of Catnip Fish!  They are both my "loss leader" and something little kids can afford.   I always place the basket of fish at a 5 yr. old's level.  If the child doesn't have a kitty of his/her own, then surely his grandma or auntie has a kitty. I keep the price extremely low and have been known to negotiate down or suddenly have a 2 for 1 sale.  It's fun to see the children find something they can purchase which they know is the perfect gift!

At my house the act of stuffing these fishies with fresh catnip is quite the trick with my two cats hovering.  I store the completed fish in the refrigerator until the craft fair and always save a couple for my own kittens.  I like the batik fabrics for this purpose.
