I have a favorite cat who has cancer on the roof of his mouth. Lately, he's been sleeping a lot and finds a pile of clean laundry or whatever and stays there for hours. I decided I could make him a pet bed and I would have a memento when he goes to kitty heaven.
I found a tutorial using a sweatshirt. I liked the idea and got a sweater from Goodwill. I figured old was good. I liked the texture on the sweater I found for $1.
It took me about 10 minutes to make this, I had to take out a short neckline zipper and close the seam. Then I stitched straight across the neck from the top of the shoulder. I then made a seam across the chest from under the arms. I used an old pillow I had, probably 18" square. I closed the bottom. Then I stuffed the arms and pinned under the front edge
This was super easy. And it was love at first sight for Shadow.
