I love my cat,
but I do not love cat hair on my couch.
So yesterday I finally got around to making
a proper Cat Mat for my kitty.
I bought 5/8 of a yard of blue checkered flannel.
It cost me less than $3.00.
I cut it in half and placed the flannel
with the good sides facing each other.
Then I cut 2 pieces of Warm & Natural batting the same size
and placed them under the 2 layers of flannel.
I sewed all the way around the edges with a 5/8" seam
leaving a 5" opening on one side for turning.
When you turn it right side out
the batting is now sandwiched
between the layers of flannel.
I slip stitched the opening closed.
I did a 5/8" top stitch all the way around the edge and
machine appliqued a heart that I cut out of red fleece.
The finished size is 20" by 25".
The entire process took about 30 minutes.
It took Arthur all of 5 minutes to check it out.....
and decide that he likes it.....
and take a cat nap on it :)
Mission accomplished :)
