I’ve been trying to keep my elderly cat warm, now that he has lost his “brother”.
So I made a cat bed that’s warm and soft.
I made a 7-part spiral for the front and had fun controlling the curvature with the height of the stitches:
I did 7-part decreases on the back to finish off the cover:
which left the front looking like this:
I made the innards from high-loft polyester batting.
I cut out a tube and some rounds with a rotary cutter and sewed the tube together with some yarn.
And this was the net result:
As always, this is not nearly as glorious as I envisioned,
but the cat seems to like it.
