My cat always thinks that blankets I make are for him, so I decided to make one just for him.  Wink  I put an actual size picture of him on the blanket so he can tell it's his! 

I fused the flannel cat onto the orange fabric.  I'm hoping it stays attached, since I don't want to sew around it.



Picture of Indiana Jones I took the outline from (that was MY floor pillow):



Paper template I made to cut out fabric from:



He loves sleeping on his new blanket, but it isn't keeping him from sleeping on my other blankets. Tongue

Now, an action shot!  He's a very creative sleeper.

That is too cute! It wouldn't be nearly as cute if it was a normal sleeping position. Great job!

This is a really cute idea. I love the little details that you added to the pattern. Ever thought about throwing those onto the pillow/blanket?

Adorable!

lol.  My cat would never let me trace him.  I got his outline from that picture using photoshop and then blew it up to actual size.  (He's also seriously afraid of rulers and yard sticks, so I had to get his length by measuring the pillow he had been laying on...)

I love the little details that you added to the pattern. Ever thought about throwing those onto the pillow/blanket?
My plan was to stitch the details on when I stitched around the cat, but I got a little lazy and a little worried I would mess it up.  I should really do that, though.  It would add a lot of cuteness.

btw, he's sleeping on it while I'm writing this.  His own idea.  Smiley
