Cats love to have their own digs where nobody can disturb them, that’s why making one is essential for a cat owner.
Prepare 1 yard personalized fabric printed on eco-canvas, 1 yard lining fabric, 1 yard 1/2″ thick foam, a seat cushion, a free pattern.
First of all, print the pattern you like or use the one from the original tutorial. Print out the free pattern download and tape it together! The pieces include about 1/2″ extra, so cut on the lines and match them up as shown in the pics. Cut out the following pieces: a front, a top piece, a cushion, a base piece, a back, a foam front and back. Sew the top piece into the middle of the front. This piece is a little bit contoured so that top bows out a bit, and it also allows you the option to use 2 fabrics. Sew the front to the back along the sides and top of the pattern. Use a 1/4″ seam allowance. Trim top corners of the ‘ears’ but do not trim seam allowance. Press and turn. Pin the base piece around the bottom of the cat bed, with right sides together. You’ll have to turn and pin and you go. To make this part easier, ease stitch your base and around the bottom of the cat bed and tug threads as needed. Also mark the base with pins to divide in quadrants, then match the sides to the sides of the cat bed piece. When you’ve pinned all the way around, the cat bed will be inside out. Sew around the base. Turn right side out. Repeat with lining fabric. Now grab your foam pieces. Sew the front and back foam together around the edges.
