DIY: Make A Cat Bed From An Old Sweater

Here’s a great little tutorial on how to make a nifty cat bed (or small dog bed) out of an old sweater. Clever and thrifty!  (Note: the tutorial uses contrasting yarn so you can see the work–you should use matching yarn and the seams won’t show.)

You don’t even need a sewing machine for this though you could use one.  You will need:

When you’re finished, the arms of the sweater will be bolsters encircling the bed.  This is a pretty easy project and the author said it took her longer to write the tutorial than to make the bed.  She also has a great suggestion of making one to donate to your local shelter.  Nice!

The author of the tutorial has a fun blog on knitting and other crafty things.
