I can't believe I just embroidered on a cat bed! My thread broke 563 times... well, maybe I exaggerated just a bit. But it broke a lot, and I made a lot of mistakes. I would do it differently if I had to do it over.

That's so neat that you did that even with all or especially with thread breaks. I think it looks great.

thank you. Maybe if I had basted it down it would have gone better. It was really "lofty" and I had to keep pressing it down with my fingers.

Very nice work - inspite of the thread breaks. Whose font and design is this?

The font is built in my Brother, and the crown came from sewforum. I reduced the size of the crown a bit, but I forgot to decrease the density, which really made it difficult.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets hives. My son's fiance has a cat and I have had to take double allergy pills when we are around her. This design and wording turned out lovely. My son has put their cat's bed on top of the cupboard. That would be a good place to put Melvin's bed so he would have to work at getting up there.

well, I'm really allergic to cats--break out in nasty itchy hives when one is around, so it took courage for me to do this. Luckily, Melvin hasn't slept in it yet.

Oh, my goodness then you really are a trooper taking on project that could do that much to you. You have loving heart too!

thank you. Melvin's "mom" was worried about him, because he needs to lose 2 pounds, so she bought him a new bed. the things we do for our animals!

thank you. The owner of the cat chose the look--she calls herself the queen, so her cat must be the prince!
