Hey!  A million years ago I came across this thread, loved it and got inspired: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30336.0
Kept checking now and then for an updated tutorial, but no dice, and I eventually forgot it. 

Then I saw a link to this in the pet tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77214.0
but by the time I got there, the link was dead!  What to do?!  Well, I made my own:




Action shot!

Nothing really to it, just picked up two squares of that polyfill nu-foam you can get at most craft stores; I got mine at Michael's.  The animal print fabric is from IKEA (where me and my roommate got tents for our obviously spoiled cats) and the fish print is from my local fabric store.  The sofa is just basically pillows sewn together.  Two squares of the nu-foam were enough to make the sofa and to make the little cushions!  Since that last shot I don't think a cat has sat in it.  Such is the curse of the industrious cat-owner....

This is adorable! What a lucky kitty to get her own sofa! You know, she probably sits on it when no one's looking Wink Great job!

I love it! Great fabric choices!

I'm gonna try it for mine but I doubt I'll have any luck getting him to actually use it...

Perhaps if I sit in it and put important papers there it will train him to think he doesn't belong there and use it anyway! Haha reverse kitty psychology for the win!

Thank you Smiley good idea about the papers, maybe I should start putting skeins of nice yarn on the sofa.
