KITTTTYYYY

I’m adopting a kitty! There’s a shelter out here that I love to support and volunteer for as often as possible called Catman2. As a graduation present, one of my friends is paying my adoption fee for a kitty! So I decided to make a kitty bed because every kitty needs a box to sleep in, right?

Rounding up my supplies

Wasn’t sur ehow much cardboard I’d need… turns out I only needed one box!

I used a clorox box and cut it down the middle…

and then opened it up. If you have more than one cat, you could make an extra-large kitty bed!

But I’m only getting one. So I cut it in half.

Hot-glued the flaps down so it was a tray of sorts

using the other half of the box, I made a template for the head/foot board.

Painted them white

Except for the part that would be glued to the tray! because the paint would peel off and the head board would fall off. So I left that part blank.

Cut 16 small 3-inch squares, and hot-glued them together in sets of 4

Covered them in fabric, as if I were wrapping them

Everything glued together

Hypothetically you could paint the inside too, but I doubt my cat will care.

The bottom looks like this.

Made a really fast quilt (I’m talking four hours and this thing was done)

ta-da! isn’t it cute!?

 

So now you know how to make a kitty bed.

Or a doll bed, or a teddy-bear bed, or even a guinea pig bed or rabbit bed. If you feel so inclined.
