Sweater bed for our cat

She immediately began to wash which means instant love for this fussy old girl!

An thrifted old pure wool men's sweater/jumper that I have washing machine felted so it's thick and strong.

With a few seams, a bit of stuffing and a couple of buttons.

Absolute luxury.  A very warm and cosy bed for our aged cat Annie who will be 13 next week.  You can see the flecks of grey in her coat but her health is good and I'm sure she'll love this bed during winter.  She's sound asleep in it now so I think that is a good sign that this project is a winner.  This was an idea I've had kicking around in my head for a while, just had to find the right sweater/jumper.

What a great idea. Annie looks very happy, and very young for her age. I wonder if she would share her fountain of youth secrets :)

I think she has claimed it as a prime sleeping spot. What a cute idea.

I would love to know how you made this! Something like this would make a great pattern for sale! It's genius and practical!
