So I have this old sweater… it’s shrunk in the laundry. Or maybe it has a massive moth-eaten hole? Or is it unsightly? Anyway, if you have a useless wool sweater, you don’t have to throw it away. With a couple of minutes of work, you can turn it into a charming cat bed. It will look dainty and you save money on an expensive shop-bought bed. You can try it with another piece of clothing, like a sweatshirt or perhaps wholesale women's blouses 34 sleeve.

If your sweater shrunk in the laundry, it should feel softer and long-lasting. You can shrink it in the laundry anyway, it’s called “felting”. Get some yarn and a thick tapestry needle for sewing. Lay your sweater out flat, then imagine you’re bending your arms in the elbow. Stitch the seam of the upper arm of the sweater to the side of the sweater.

Fold the bottom edge of the sweater up, and place the sleeves in front of it - create the “cat bed” shape. Once again, use the thick needle to sew the sleeves to the top of the rolled up sweater edge. Remember that you’re going to stuff the sleeves, so leave yourself some maneuvering space! Put one cuff inside the other, and stitch them together - but only from the one side so that you will be able to put your stuffing inside the tube.

Make a stitch from one round it to another to add shape to the bed. Now you can stuff the sleeves and the upper part of the sweater. Remember, you’ll have to wash this cat bed, so don’t use paper - pick batting or old rags. You can also use this opportunity to pad the bottom. Remember that the wholesale women's blouses 34 sleeve are more delicate when making the bed.

Finally, stitch the neck opening closed. You can secure any openings as well.

This method works great if the sweater smells of you - animals like this and will feel secure when you’re not at home. You can also be a nice girl and donate the sweater to your local pet shelter.
