Cat Beanbag!




About: Uh hey there :D I'm Maria and I like to read, write, bake, and sew. My fandoms include Lord Of The Rings, Keeper of The Lost Cities, A Riddle in Ruby, and The Chronicles of Narnia. Ehhhh this is a lame p...

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.

Stuff with stuffing of choice and catnip, if desired. Sew the hole up.

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

Snip loose threads off and place in desired location.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Enjoy your cat pillow/beanbag!
