Daybed for the cats
I found a doll's daybed at Goodwill, stripped it of it's old ratty fabric covering and turned it into a 2 level cat bed.
Of course it had to have quilt! I used a simple pattern and tied it instead of quilting it. The top 'bunk' is the quilt resting on a hammock. The hammock is attached with velcro so I can take it off and wash it.
The lower bed, where the trundle would be on a real daybed, is a 5" thick piece of foam. IN the photos it's not in place yet because I have to remove a couple small metal bars under the bed first. As soon as I can find those metal snips I'll get it in there. (But that would mean cleaning the garage and i would rather be sewing!)
I used quite a bit of fabric, but last week I picked up several yards at the local quilt shop that were on sale for $4/yd. I didn't have a plan for it then, but I'm sure glad I bought it.
I've got three cats but Jack was my test subject while I was working on this and I think he's decided it's his!

Thanks for looking!
