Another month and another cool contest over at The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest. This month we were challenged by our sponsor, Minted.com, with their “Take a Seat” theme using a few yards of their premium canvas fabric! Woot!


You guys know Minted.com right? They are the geniuses behind all the beautiful stationery. Remember their custom Christmas cards I shared with you? Well, today I’m sharing their beautiful fabric! Minted is unstoppable.

I ordered their Modern Math Fabric in both black and green. I was completely convinced that I wanted to use green and black in my design but, of course, I had no idea what I was going to do with it when it arrived. This is just my creative way I guess.

Several days after I received my fabric I was roaming the aisles of my neighborhood Goodwill and I spotted this cute black table thingy.

Black table for Pet Bed

Seriously, what the heck is this? Maybe it’s a lego table? When I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted it to become. Yep, a pet bed!

So let’s recap.

Minted was going to send me awesome fabric to use in a project and I decided to make a pet bed. Guess what this means?

Many, many, many photos of my little girls! Any excuse to write a whole post featuring my little furbabies is just plain awesome. 🙂

Let me break it down for you.

I essentially just pulled out some foam from my crafty stash and cut it to fit the inset area of the black table.

Kitties working

After I cut the foam, I laid it on top of my black cross fabric and then cut the fabric allowing for 1-2″ around the foam.

I decided to make my little kitty cushion two-sided, so I cut another piece of fabric but this time I used the green crosses.

Before I began to sew the kitty cushion, I went ahead and ran the iron over the fabric to get rid of the wrinkles.

Then I placed both pieces of fabric on top of the other with the pattern facing inside.

Then I started to sew. This was a group effort.

Who knew that every single aspect of this project would require their “assistance”. Cats are so irritating curious. 🙂

Here is the new double-sided Modern Math Minted.com Fabric Pet Bed. It’s so cute and can I just tell you that my littlest one has been sleeping in her new bed for the last hour.

    I love it and your babies are super adorable. I didn’t mean for mine to be a pet bed but it has been one since I brought the bench home. Lol! Nice job.
