It wasn't easy to finish this project. Whenever I thought about I, I found my kitty in the unfinished bed and didn't want to disturb her (photo below). But I got lucky today, and I think it's a hit!
A later PS: Some of you have asked how this can be cleaned. Truth is, I didn't give that a thought! It was was so darned cute in the photo I saw that I just ran with the thought of making it. I guess the first thing is to make sure the sweater is washable, so don't use wool (mine is acrylic). Second, stuff the arms that make the bed round with washables. I used old cotton towels. I also put three flat layers of leftover fleece in the bottom to make it feel cushy. Now, even though I have all washable parts, I don't think it can be thrown into the machine and agitated. I think that would pretty much destroy it. So, it is either going to be taken apart to be washed, dried, then reassembled (hah!), or washed gently by hand in which case I don't know how it would completely dry. To be honest, I'm just hoping it won't get dirty! LOL
