35 pet beds and 120 doodie plastic bag carriers ready to go to the local Humane Society today. The pet beds are made from towels and 1/2 inch batting. Some I hand tied, some I machine quilted. Also are a couple of pictures showing my Mocha approving the beds. At least I know these will be loved as they are cat tested and approved :-)

When I took all the items in to the Humane Society, one of the staff started to cry. She couldn't believe all the items I donated. They are going to use the blankets for the cats and kittens and are going to sell the doodie bags to raise funds for needed items/equipment. I think I'll pop out to Fabricland tomorrow and pick up another batting bundle (it's on 50% off) and hang on to it in case they need more. Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I love doing things like this - keeps my days full, my hands busy and keeps me out of trouble. And to Noah - yes, Mocha (she) got a beautiful red one.

Oh, wider57, the photos of Mocha remind me of my much loved Bianca, now not with us, who used to do exactly the same thing when I had a tulle tu-tu skirt under the machine or on the cutting table! Thank you for sharing and for being so kind to the pets at the Humane Society Shelter! Your beds will be much loved as you will be also!!

lol That was a very careful first step for Mocha and looks settled in. Think this one is claimed by the paw test. Nice job on getting so much made. Before I had the embroidery machine my mom and I drew on gently used towels cat and dog heads with a big wide sharpie marker and took a few batches. When her senior home found out they came with more towels. Back then never thought to quilt them just folded in half and stitched around. They were so appreciated as they usually send an animal home with some items.

I found the rings and carabiners on E-bay for cheap. I bought the zippers from Zipperstop.com. I have a large grommet machine and buy grommets from kamsnaps.com Hope this helps. Vida

Thanks that's what I am looking for is the carabiners I have to make water bottles for where I work for gifts for the visitors. But I am having trouble finding some that I can afford. Thanks will check eBay .
