My office window overlooks the back garden, and the cats often spend time in here sunning themselves on the window sill. I usually fold up a piece of fabric or an old curtain to make them a soft bed to lie on, but it always looks messy after they have wriggled about on it. This is an old quilty thingy I made many moons ago, it wants chucking really but I keep washing it and using it again. I think now is the time to make something which looks a bit more neat and tidy.
I've got some strips of foam which I got from the Scrapstore, it isn't quite long enough so I had to add a short piece to make it the right length. I was going to cover it with a cotton fabric to make a mat but the foam isn't very thick, so I covered it first with a piece cut from an old flannelette bedsheet.
Sew it together leaving the end open, stuff the foam inside and stitch it up.
Then using it as a guide, cut a piece of cotton fabric twice the width, and a bit longer, to allow for the seams. I have used an old curtain which someone gave me about four years ago.
Sew it together inside out and turn the right way, stuff the cushion inside and stitch up the end. Bob's your uncle, job's done, and the pussies have a new mat to lounge on.
