Step 6:

15. Cut your Chevron pieces.

16. Sew together each of your two chevron pieces, right side to right side on both angled sides and the short end.  Turn them right side out so that you have 3 larger grey chevron pockets and 3 smaller colored (orange or blue) smaller pockets.

17. Attach the colored chevron pockets to the grey pockets.  (Either by machine or by glue) On a nine symbol gate, that meant my chevrons were between every third symbol.  The open tail end of the chevron should overlap onto the bottom of the bed.  The longest part of the tail, tuck into the “seam” between the base-wormhole and the gate-sidewall.

18. Spot glue the base-wormhole to the gate-sidewall several times for added stability.
Cute!!my cat loves it!
These are hilarious and awesome. I love the detail of even having the "wormhole" pattern fabric in the bottom.
Indeed! ^.~
Awesome. <br> <br>Now you need to make a DHD scratching post.
Maybe that's a project for you ^.~<br><br>I was kind of thinking I might try a One Ring next (From LotR)
ooo now that would be cool to see, use a pool noodle cut in half for the shape..I love it. go for it cause I want to see it...go, start making it...
The only problem I have with this build is that cats don't need that kind of thing to teleport whereever they feel like it. ;) <br>
This is the most awesome cat bed /ever/.
Thanks! :D
Your cats are lucky to have someone meet all their geeky needs. Nice job!
Aww... thanks! &gt;^,^&lt;
You must really like Stargate!
Partially that, and partially its a recognizable thing to use for a geek household cat bed. And when I went looking after the second destroyed store bought one, there were a surprising lack of that kind of thing. Lots of suitcases and computer monitors, one person with a millenium falcon pillow... but not much else.
My young cat will be interested, especially if I put it in the clothes closet!
So cool, I bet the kitties love these!
They do seem to get used quite a bit. And are holding up better than the prior ones we bought.<br><br>
it's so they can close their irises ;)
Love it!
I never really cared for SG, but I'll be danged if I can't appreciate how slick this is. Aren't you afraid of loosing the cat on some other planet?
Well there are times when say.... a certain animal doesn't stay away from the toilet paper that the idea does have appeal. &not;.&not;<br><br>However, it appears that the Cat-gate connections are very stable and must require some effort to actually travel through.
Hah, nice :)
That looks great! All the detail you put in really makes it awesome!
Thank you! I enjoyed making them, and the cats seem to enjoy sleeping in them!
