    That is so cool! I love it. I don't know if I comprehend the whole process though.

    I love all the pics of the sleeping kitties too.

    Looks simple enough. I might give it a shot and make one for my son's cats. That could be a nice little extra income maker, especially around the holidays.

    Oh my gosh!! I love this idea! I make tie blankets all the time as gifts. This is the same idea (I assume, I didn't go to the link) and they are super easy! I'll bet my kitties (and even the doggies) would LOVE this!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I'm even thinking of just making new covers for existing beds. Maybe add some polyfil to make them fluffier.
    I may even make some as gifts for my animal lover friends.

    Now I want to make some.

    I will say this about her directions. If you fold both pieces together at the same time, you create two circles of different sizes. Fleece is thick and the folding makes the inside circle smaller, thus the pull and wrinkle.

    It seems that you figured that out. Your other pillows don't poof like the first one. But all are beautiful. I like the colors.

    I have some fleece blankets that a neighbor made for me. She used a simple knot and that kept one side from pulling on the other. She just tied the tags off like she was tying a thread.

    Although I do like the poof.

    The critters will want some.

    They're adorable. I've made cats beds in the past but they're the cat condom beds. I'm sure there's also a thread some where on PT about them too. I found the link to the thread about them: http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthre...ghlight=condom. I still have a lot of fleece material that I bought just to make cat beds.

    Here are some cat beds that I've made in the past:
