One of my favorite cat blogs is the Katnip Lounge at http://katniplounge.blogspot.com. It's also on the right side bar of my blog. Trish and her husband Scott have 13 adorable cats and the coolest cat patio (the catio) ever. You have to visit their blog. Anyway, the cats are often pictured napping in these cute copier-paper box lids with a fleece cover. They're a perfect size. She gave the directions, but I don't remember what month or day it was. I finally got some box lids from another foster mom and made six of them in half an hour. I gave one to the lady who adopted Scooter and will take some for foster moms tomorrow.
This is Lilly, who was the first one in it. Buster came and wanted in, but Lilly said no way. Hey, Scott, I thought of you when I saw the fleece at the store. Scott and I both like tie-dyed things and bright colors. Thank you, Trish, for sharing your cover pattern. I have about 7 yards of fleece to sew.
You wouldn't believe the trouble I've had getting the box lids. I went to our local Office Max, because who would have more empty paper boxes than them, right? When I asked if I could have some of their box lids to make beds for poor little foster kittens who have been rescued from death's door, I was told no, I couldn't. They throw them all away. And they don't give things away that they sell, and they sell boxes. I asked if the boxes they sell have the separate lids, or do they have the flaps? They have the flaps. So, let me get this straight - you don't sell the type of box lids I want, but you can't give me any because you throw them away? Yes. My money spent at Office Max will be far less from now on.
Another foster mom, Cheri, brought me half a dozen box lids from her work. Thank you, Cheri. You have first dibs on the covers tomorrow.
