Fun Find: DIY Chic Suitcase Cat Bed

This is so cool, we're going to have to send mom out to a few secondhand stores to see what she can find in the way of retro suitcases!


Designed by Stephanie at Brooklyn Limestone, she offers step by step instructions - with photos at her blog here. We're so glad she shared this on Pinterest. Click over and give her post a look. The in-progress photos are fab - as well as her dismay that a certain kitty refused to use the chic reversible pillow she'd made for it, preferring for her to place one of her expensive cardigans inside (black please) instead.  (We three kittehs totally get that, BTW.)

It's a fun project for very little money, if you have the time. We especially love what she did on the inside of the lid!

  7. What a wonderful idea! Moosey always tries to sleep in the suitcase when we're packing anyway, so this is sort of perfect. :)

    Hugs to you all, dear friends!

  16. Hey, that's not bad at all. I kind of like the new bed... If only boxes were as sturdy, I'm sure a people would consider making cat beds out of them too.

  17. We saw this about a year ago and even had Mom print out the instructions. Has she made us one of these yet…of course NOT! Be sure and share photos if you find a suitcase and make one. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
