Epic Fail: Kitty Tunnel

I had the best intentions of participating in the Amy Butler Sewalong hosted by Sara at Sew Sweetness. I couldn't really get it together in the last few weeks to put together and awesome purse or a quilt using one of her patterns.

Amy Butler's In Stitches: More Than 25 Simple and Stylish Sewing Projects

But, in a last-ditch effort to get a project together, I settled on the Kitty Tunnel from Amy's book In Stitches. Probably because the cat in the book looks a lot like mine, and I thought that would be pretty cute to get a photo just like the one in the book.



Amy's version includes a drawstring on one side and is lined with faux fur. Knowing the my cat was not likely to be interested in the kitty tunnel for very long, I decided to use completely upcycled materials. For the inside, I cut up a thick, wool scarf that I'm no longer wearing because it kind of had that lion's mane thing going on. For the outside of the tunnel, I used a simple skirt that I once made.

Tonight, I snapped a few photos of Murph's reaction. As I expected, he wasn't really interested in getting inside the tunnel. He probably would have been more interested if I had sewn him a fancy paper bag or cardboard box.

I will enter the Kitty Tunnel, once

Okay. But only because you stuck one of my treats in there.

"I'm so over the Kitty Tunnel"

Yeah, I'm so over that tunnel. Me too, Murph. Me too.

  1. Those cats can be such BRATS! This is too funny. I really wanted to do Sara's sewalong too, but there was just no way to find the time. Sigh. Oh well!
