Crafting for Critters

Blogged under Crafts from the Past,Fiber Fun,Sew Simple by Tammy on Tuesday 23 March 2010 at 8:46 am

I posted this photo in one of my Facebook albums but thought it would be fun to share here as well. After taking this picture of “THE” most comfortable cat in the whole wide world, I realized that he is lounging on items that I made a long time ago.

The blue crocheted blanket and the pinkish one across from him were afghans that sort of ran amok. The pillow in the center I also made. I purchased the pillow insert from a fabric store, and I used a pillow case, cut it down to fit around this smaller insert, and stitched it closed. Additionally, the curtains behind him (which I need to replace with new ones) were a sheet that I cut to fit the window and added a casing at the top to fit over a push rod.

As you can see, they all make for a very comfortable spot in front of a window. It feels good to be appreciated.

    Those look like very comfortable, medium weight blankets, Tammy….especially for spring/summer when it’s getting warmer outside, but you want soemthing to cover up with and take a nap! The cat looks like a King! Good color combinations…..you have a great eye to detail!

    Lovely crocheted items – lovely cat. That works.

    Thanks, guys, he is getting pretty old now, but still looks pretty darn good considering he’s going on 17. Everyone always thinks he’s a Russian Blue, but I just found him as a stray. He was the scrawniest little thing then!
