cat cozy

Once upon a time I had this lovely jumper, which got an un-lovely hole in the elbow.

So I felted it in a nice hot wash, cut on the dotted lines (as shown)

and sewed it into a delightful cat bed. (She sleeps on all my jumpers, might as well give her one that's hers alone!)

Here's a view from the top. I cut pieces 1 and 2 out then whipstitched them together. The sleeves are folded over for more stability.

I love it! The cat bed looks really cosy and I love how the squares look in it.
