I’m a bit under the weather today so just some quick photos as promised on Friday.


I found the perfect basket – it once held fruit and more recently, a bunch of squash.  I got my copy of Bend the Rules Sewing out and started working.


I traced the bottom and added a couple inches all the way around as a pattern.  I made a pillow insert out of flannel and poly fill.  Then I took the found fabric and made a cover.  The back side opens – I used hook and loop tape for my closure.  It fit the basket well and looked comfy, but it still wasn’t quite right.


A couple of coats of black spray paint later, I had a cat bed.


Much better.  It looks great in the kitchen – the green matches the walls perfectly.  Now if Scout would just use it…
