I had a bunch of old sheets, and plenty of poly batting, so made up some small kitty quilts, or cat mats...
I cut the sheets into approximately a fat quarter size (18" x 22"), matched 2 different coordinating prints, and sewed them together with the batting in the middle. It was EASY and QUICK! The five shown will be sent to Shadow Cats Rescue in Texas. But the next ones I make will be given to a local rescue group, Heaven Can Wait.
These can be made with a lot of different "leftovers" - old sweatshirts, old t-shirts, towels, pillow cases, blankets,baby blankets....use your imagination! For instance, use the front and back of an old sweatshirt for the outside layers, and add a towel as the middle layer to give it a little more softness. They should be washable, of course. The size I made will be great for cats or small dogs, but you can use the same idea for larger dogs.
Help a kitty!
