Cat bed

I finished sewing both McCalls M5538 views that I was making for Hubby and I (posting soon on how mine turned out) and found myself with a lot of leftover gray fleece. Originally I told Hubby that I'd be making Beagle a matching jacket so the three of us could show some style.

Luckily for Hubby (and Beagle) I put the fleece to better use. My cat loves sleeping on our living room couch. He's trying to change the color from red, to orange & white by using all of his energy to shed as much as possible only while laying on the couch. So, I decided to make him a cat mat or cat bed to place on his favorite spot on the couch.

We usually have a junky looking towel stretched across the couch when we don't have company to prevent the couch from collecting cat hair.

Maybe... just maybe... Gator (my cat) will choose to lay on his new cat bed instead of directly on the couch. I know chances are slim, but it was worth a try to me!


  1. Fantastic idea to make the cat bed! It looks great! Thank you so much for commenting on my blog.

  2. That is a great idea and it turned out so cute! I need something to keep dog hair off my couches. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
