This is what the bed - which we named Frootbed in the meantime - looked like before it was felted in the washing machine. By felting the wool the whole thing shrinks and gets sturdier (or so mom thought). Notice the wavey rim and the three lines in the pattern - do you think they look nice?
Well with me, little Chillimus, anyway. You see, mom isn't really the crafty type of mom, but lately she has begun to do some wetfelting and crochet. Only all the good stuff was given away as presents! Don't get me wrong, I love to see a good furriend happy, it just would have been nice to keep something for us too. So mom agreed to do a crochet kitty bed forI helped during the complete process. That wool looks good!Flossing seemed impawtant to me. Mom said it isn't.
And this is what it looked like when it came out of the washing machine. "A mess", to cite mom here. The decorative brim and pattern had disappeared completely and it was much smaller than she intended it to be.
And it wasn't sturdy at all, in fact it collapsed under me. Mom wasn't happy with it at all.But I still liked it and played with it, afterwards trying to crawl inside. Look at my cute Hermit Crab impurrsonation!
So mom simply turned over the brim. Now it's sufficiently sturdy. And although it is quite the tight fit it's purrfect for sleeping in it. I have been glued to it ever since! It's great for the kitty circle...
Thank you mom, I love it!
