Our customers frequently request options for coordinating cat bed sets, but sometimes it is hard for us to find fabrics that will work, or enough yardage. We got lucky this time and found four fabrics from the "Stitch Cats" collection designed by textile and paper design artist Nancy Nicholson, and produced by Clothworks.
I decided to make the cat beds this way because I thought it would be fun to discover the bright and creative cats if they were hiding inside the Cat Ball, and I thought it might be easier for people to add a cat bed made in the more solid, dark raspberry pink color into their homes than the busier folksy-look kitty print. The Cat Canoe could have gone either way, but I thought putting the flat charcoal grey birds print outside was the better option. I'm really happy with the results!
