Oh man, this has to be the most glamourous cat accessory I have EVER SEEN. Wisting, WE HAVE TO HAVE ONE OF THESE. I'm seriously impressed :-)

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

It's McCalls M5677
this is the website I bought it from
http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5677.htm?tab=hilary_duff&page=2 (mod's please remove if this isn't allowed)

there are 3 options to choose from, but I thought the one I did was the most chic.

That is pretty swanky! Hey, just elongate it and put some legs on it for a cool chaise longue!

Glad you put the pattern number up and I saw the little dog on it. I kept thinking my little dogs would chase the cats off of it so they could lay on it. My dogs just think anything with padding is something they have to lay on. Yes they are pampered pooches. When at the vet's office they think the cats there are their best friends and just funny looking dogs.

My cat just said: "learn to sew mom"

Lol do it!!!  This was the second thing I made after I took sewing lessons!  It actually was fairly straight forward and the instructions are VERY good!

Making the arm was the hardest, you have to score this foam board to make the curve, but you have to be careful to not cut through it!  Now my cat sleeps on the arm and it's starting to sag a little!

I also sewed the cushion for the arm (with the piping) together wrong twice!  God bless the seam ripper.........
Still only took me about 2 weeks!
