GOSIG cat nest

Materials: 2 GOSIG baskets

Description: I simply sew 2 GOSIG baskets together with blanket stitch using cotton thread #6.

I thought it was small for two cats but they don’t care!

    I had a thing that was in the kids department made to hang on wall and store toys, bottom zippered open for some reason. Anyway quickly learned kittens loved it, so much that when they could no longer fit in they lounged on it. I haven’t found one since. It looks like a flattish igloo and came in several colors.Love this idea.

    I found them in the children department, they’re intended for storing toys!

    My god, you did a blind stitch! I would have just whip stitched it, but your stitch looks pretty cool. Way to go!
    Love the two kitties together. Wish mine would do that. My male will kick the female out of where ever she is…just for the heck of it.

    I have 2 of those because my cats love them so much, but I’d never thought of making a kitty cave with them. I think I’ll go and buy a few more ~ I have 4 kitties of my own and foster many others throughout the year. I think the pregnant moms especially will really love this!

    good idea! to make it easier to wash, you could assemble the two baskets with some press buttons (patent /snap fasteners/poppers).

    kind regards!
