1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cat tower idea on: July 25, 2008 11:50:26 PM
I have a new kitten, and a new town house. We have stairs that are carpeted that he loves to play on and climb up and under, but he needs some sort of lofty area to call his own. A cat condo or whatever you call it. I really don't want to spend more than $100 total on it. I also don't want to buy one of those horrible carpeted badly colored bulky monstrosities that are so expensive and ugly. I don't have wood cutting tools at my disposal, so making one out of plywood or something like that isnt really an option. I would also like it to be fairly easy to take it apart if we move or anything.
I've found some pics of carboard / duct tape towers. But that wouldnt be sturdy enough for the long term, since my kitten is likely to turn into a large tom cat. And then i found this :
It looks like its made out of PVC pipes and joints.
I'm thinking i could make it pretty easily. Probably wrap the bottom legs with jute or rope or whatever so its like a scratch post for him. and use fleece or some sort of sturdy cloth to make a hammock sort of thing on it. I would make it in a shape like this:
-       -
-       -
-       -
-       -

with four feet. Do you guys think I should figure out how to attatch it to a piece of plywood as a base or would it be sturdy enough as it is? attatching it to our wall is also an option, since it will be up against the wall.
Have any of you tried to make a structure like this? I've never made any thing this big so any hints would be great!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Faux Fur Coat ? on: June 01, 2006 09:58:42 PM
I'm struggling to find any sort of pattern i could use to make a fur coat for my boyfriend and myself. He wants a full length wide collared one, and i want a wide collared double breasted hip length. Hes not exactly little either which once i find the right style, I'm pretty sure I'll have to make some adjustments. Hes 6'3 and a 50" chest.

 Does anyone know where i could find anything like these? I've done some searches and come up totally empty handed...
