Sometimes you have to take a break or you'll go crazy staring at yards of satin and chiffon and glitter.. So I took a little time one day to make a cute little beddy for the kitties. I had seen pictures of it and thought well that looks easy! And figured I could throw it together in maybe an hour. Do you hear the death knell yet? I sure didn't..
I bought a couple of yards of cheap material (a dollar a yard, where do you find that any more!) Then I went to find the instructions. Hmm, they had to be there somewhere, right? Hello, instructions! Where are you?! All I could find was a set of pictures on a site in a foreign language. There were no instructions for me to put in a translator even! Just pictures!
Well, I've been sewing for more years than I'm going to admit, so surely, I could figure it out by these pictures, right? What death knell? I'm sure that's just something on the TV or something...
It took most of the day, and ripping out more seams than I ever have, but I finally finished the bed! And wow, some measurements sure would have helped! The bed was HUGE! And the walls probably shorter than they needed to be. I mean, I have some large kitties, but this thing could fit two of them with room to spare! I bet if they tried, all three of them could fit! Seriously, it looked more like a bed for a mid sized dog than a cat.. But it also looked really soft! So with a confidence that really made that death knell ring, I tossed it onto the floor and waited for the kitties to notice and love it and adore me for making them so comfy!
And I waited......
Finally! Cashmere noticed!
What fresh hell is this? I disdain it, whatever it is.
Along came Leo!
What the fluff... Um, I don't think so! Buh bye!
And fancy pants just kept walking..
Is anyone ever going to like it?? Guess you'll have to keep reading. :)
PS, it's the angle of the picture that makes Leo look like a good fit for the bed's size, trust me, even my big boy would be lost in that thing!
