Magical 3-in-1 Cat Bed

So, to give them a comfy place where they can still be close, yet well out of harm’s way, I designed this simple, compact 3-in-1 cat bed for my desk. Even my furry snobs—who prefer cardboard boxes and freshly washed laundry to plush cushions any day—couldn’t wait to snuggle in. DIY Fabric Weights. Some fabrics can't be pinned, so cutting out can be a disaster unless you have some nifty pattern weights.

DIY Fabric Weights

This can include some knits, sheer fabrics, and leather. Joann's sells a package of 4 pattern weights for $11.99. For that price, I could buy fabric for another project or put it towards some pinking shears (if only I could find left-handed ones!!). I set out to make my own for less than $3 each. Pinterest had great ideas pinned from other sewers, so the tutorial below is not my idea, but it's a good one! Handmade Labels. Labels are always an after thought when it comes to creating, you use it to tell which way is which or the size but after stumbling upon a homemade dress at the thrift store and noticing no tag I realized that a tag can be used as a signature, years from now when I'm out of my black and white chevron phase hopefully someone will know that whoever this Tangible Artiste is, they put a lot of work and thought into this specific item and will take better care of it because it's handmade.
