I saw a pattern for a circular pillow and thought why not make her one of her own with a little cover that she can climb into. I stuffed it with the stuffing from an old pillow for two reasons. I didn't have a new bag and the scent she knows is already in there.
There is no pattern, but really it's just a few circles all put together, stuffed and tied. I'll try to explain what I did through the pictures.
I sewed the top on first, but realized after the fact I could have just layered it altogether and made one circular stitch leaving on opening large enough to fill the pillow. The seam should be at least 3 inches into the circle. That will leave material to cut and tie.
|Sorry about the glare.|
After you have that much tied, fill the pillow with whatever stuffing you chose. Tie the remaining fronts and backs together. Now go get your pet and try to convince them that this lovely new pillow is just for them and upset them by coaxing them into the opening to really prove it. (The better method is to put a treat inside the opening and let them discover a hidden treasure.) I also discovered that this little bed works for all the animals. As soon as one leaves it another one takes it over.
