I wanted to share something I made recently with you. Unfortunately I didn’t write a tutorial as its something I just threw together with some bits and bobs I had lying around and wasn’t really planned. My mum had to help me a bit because I still only have the use of one arm so crafting can be quite a challenge! It was mostly my own work though 😉
So the thing I made was a cat tree for Nala, my EveStudios cat! Its something I’d been wanting to make for a while but never got round to it, and its not exactly what I had in mind, but I am still pretty thrilled with it!
The base is a piece of sturdy card (cut from an old box) with a piece of fleece fabric glued to it; and the sleeping platform at the top is the same, but its stuffed with some stuffing from one of my real dog’s toys that she had torn to shreds earlier in the evening haha! The scratching post is a sturdy cardboard tube with twine threaded all the way around it; and the tunnel tube is another sturdy cardboard tube covered with hessian fabric. So basically, all I used was an old cardboard box, some old fleece fabric, some dog toy stuffing (lol!), some twine and a bit of glue and sticky back plastic!
I would prefer the scratching post tube to be taller but for a first attempt I am pretty happy. I may make another one in the future but this one is more than adequate for now and Nala seems pretty pleased with it too 🙂
