… her new “beanbag” pillow.
This was something I sort of just threw together a while back. I got these great yards of Amy Butler fabric in a trade on Etsy and they had been just sitting around in my craft room. I basically just folded one of them, hand stitched up the sides and then stuffed it with some styrofoam peanuts I also had lying around. Ginger loved it as soon as I gave it to her!
Recently though, it dawned on me… dark fabric, light haired cat. It might have been wise to install a zipper? to be able to wash it easily? perhaps?
So, that’s what I did. And then to make the stuffing easily removable during washings I just put it all in a plastic bag that I can just take out and put back in. Voila!
Of course after all this hand sewing, because I don’t own a sewing machine, Ginger was not interested in her pillow at all. Cats!
It sat around unused for a couple days, but yesterday I caught her. You can hear her on it with all the noise from the peanuts.
She loves her pillow once again.
