Cat Mat Sewing

From time to time I wash Slinky’s bedding, by which I mean the blankets around the house that cover his beds or my knees when watching tv. Unfortunately, when they are in the wash there’s nothing to protect his beds or my knees, so I decided to do something about that.

First I made two fitted sheets for the heated cat bed under my desk which, not surprisingly, he prefers at this time of year. He pronounced his approval by vomiting up a tiny hairball that first night. Thanks Slinky.

Then I sewed up a new knee rug using leftover bits of flanellette.

It has proven very suitable, protecting my knees from claws and providing extra warmth for both of us.
