Introduction: Cat Beanbag!

Picture of Cat Beanbag!

Who doesn't love beanbags? They're comfy, squishy, and unique! So, why not give your kitty its own beanbag to enjoy? Your kitty will love lounging in it and it will quickly become its favorite bed! ( And plus- it gets the cat off your beanbag!)

You need:

At least 2 fat quarters worth of fabric

A sewing machine


Poly-Fil, stuffing, or beanbag beads

Catnip ( optional. I left this out because my cats would rip up the pillow looking for the catnip. Consider this before adding.)


A cat

Step 1: Cut 2 Circles of the Same Size.

The shape doesn't have to be a circle, it can be a blob, heart, or whatever you want! For a cat beanbag, the circles should be at least a foot in diameter. Bear in mind the cat you are making it for and size accordingly.

Step 2: Flip and Sew.

Flip the shapes right side in. Sew all around it, leaving an opening big enough to fit your hand though.

Step 3: Stuff With Catnip and Stuffing.

Step 4: Snip Loose Threads Off and Place in Desired Location.

You don't have to! It can just be a pet pillow. :)
