I am participating in a round-up of Christmas in July posts. I am sharing a post for an animal gift, specifically for our new kittens. This fish is sewn, stuffed, and filled with catnip. The fabric is also painted using Marabu fabric sprays. Of course, I had to give it to them now in order to share this post, they took a minute to warm up to it but they love it.
