My sister, Molly, and I love making fleece blankets for the animals in our local shelters. One of our favorite things is digging through the remnants bin at the fabric store looking for adorable patterns. Molly has taken it one step further by making little pillows. They’re cute and soft, and easy to make. And the kitties love them!

What you’ll need:

  1. Fleece
  2. Scissors
  3. Sewing machine and thread
  4. Catnip (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cut two pieces of fleece in either a small square or rectangle. You can make any size you want. Make sure the fleece is right-side out.
  2. Sew three of the sides together using a 1/2-inch seam.
  3. Stuff the pillow with fiberfill. For an extra special touch, add a little bit of catnip.
  4. Sew up the remaining side.
  5. Trim the edges. To give the pillows a more finished look, use pinking shears to trim.

After about two weeks, I finally earned this little dude’s trust. He was a stray living under my house; he came out of nowhere one day. No mama kitty or siblings around. His name is Ripley, and he sleeps on my bed now.

Found my sweet boy almost a year ago. Half starved, terrified, bitten by another animal and infested with fleas. Now he purrs constantly and loves cuddles. We’ve come a long way <3
