Cat Cave Class Part 2
Here are the finished caves.
Lynda’s sea monster needed a little needle felting to reinforce the eyestalks so they would stand up properly. Her little dog was not impressed with the cave so It will be Lynda’s companion holding her roving next to her chair.
This is Diane’s beagle pillow. The real beagles seem to be unimpressed. The first picture is half stuffed and the next is all finished.
This is Catherin’s Cave. She let it partially dry before shaping it and stuffing it into the right shape.
And the cat fits but she had other ideas. LOL
And last but not least is Kimberly’s Cave. She wrapped the long spikes around some mini pool noodle like sticks. This was for a friends cat, who loved it. Kimberly is a good friend. It was a lot of work.

Ha ha, did no one tell these canines and felines about all the work that goes into their caves?! I love them all Ann, great work, I especially like the beagle, very clever.
They all worked very hard to get there pieces done. Our pets often have different ideas than we do.
These photos gave me a chuckle – pets can be funny. The Beagle cushion is amazing. It’s almost life-size so perhaps the dog thinks he has competition! The sea monster is great and maybe would have been appreciated by a cat – the dog looks underwhelmed doesn’t he? Catherine’s cat seems determined to make a mat of her lovely cave – what a look she’s giving the camera! I’m glad Kimberley’s friend’s cat appreciated her cave – what a lot of work went into finishing that.
They did an amazing job. The caves all look great. There is no figuring out what a cat wants.
They’re great! Love them all.
Thanks They worked hard and it paid off.
Wow! they all look fantastic. I know how much work it takes to felt a cave so I am giving you all big high fives. And I know that the darling pets dont always use them as intended. This all made me smile and laugh. Excellent work.
Thank you , they did work hard. it is a big job working with so much wool.
They look great! I can’t imagine how long it must have taken for each to be finished. Well done!
Can I just point out that the last cave is my favourite because it looks a little like a croissant? 😀
It really is a big Job. Bigger I think than most people realise. It is very satisfying when they are done.
Kudos to you and your students. Having made one, I know how much work they are. And mine was just plain with no extra embellishments. Cats are ornery, aren’t they?
Thanks Ruth, it is amazing how heavy they are when they are wet. yes cats are unknowable.
They all turned out great and huge! A lot of hard work went into them, too bad the animals weren’t that impressed. Each one is so unique. I imagine it was a challenge to come up with the shape of the resists.
Thanks Marilyn. They did work hard. It is always a challenge to figure out how something 3D would look flat.
That Beagle cushion!! I think the real beagle is confused 🙂 They all look great, but I’m not surprised you keep running out of wool they look twice the size I was expecting 🙂
