Crocheted Pet BED with Pillow by pollyspawprint
I made this adorable crocheted pet bed from a vintage pattern book. It can be used by a kitty or small dog or puppy. I made this one with a cute kitty 100% cotton print. Mischievous kitties are holding fishbowls with the caption "No Fishing Allowed". It's background is lime green with blue and yellow stripes topped with brown kitties and blue fishbowls. I backed it with a soft lime green fleece (which can be put face up during the colder months for warmth). I've filled the pillow just right with soft 100% polyester fill.
Your kitty will love curling up on it for his afternoon nap! For the crocheted bed, I used triple yarns for the sides to make it sturdy; one lime green, one forest green and a multi-color consisting of yellow, blue and lime green. I crocheted the bottom using double yarns; lime green and forest green. I finished it off by winding a bright satin ribbon, with smiling dog and cat faces, through the outside of the bed and made cheerful bows on either side of the opening.
This bed measures 12 inches in width X 18 inches in length X 4 inches high. I can make a custom order bed in any of the prints seen in my other listings if you prefer. Larger sizes can also be made for an additional charge.
