For those who are interested in making a cat tent like the one I sent Mell in her swap package, here's the info:
Simplicity craft pattern #9004. Envelope includes three patterns; a cat tent, a soft-sided cat house, and a fish bed. Retail price is a bit high at $11.95... I would rate the level of difficulty at novice level.....or a 3 on a scale of 1-10, ten being most difficult. There is only straight stitching and pressing involved, along with easing fabric to line up properly on curves and such. I had a lot of fun making it.....and, had a lot of willing helpers and testers along the way. Funny how cats seem to instinctively know when it is something for them.

How do you turn the front section after you have cut out the hole?

Hi Deb,

Since I didn’t create this tent, but just posted what Tina had posted to the forum (note that it was in 2003), I can’t answer that question. Your best bet is either to join the forum (http://cats.about.com/mpboards.htm) and post a question directly to Tina (hoping she’s still around), or purchase the Simplicity pattern and follow the directions. If you already bought the pattern, Simplicity might have a “help” line.

Kim, and others who might be wondering: Although Simplicity now sells everything from sewing machines to furniture, it apparently has discontinued all its patterns for cat beds and the tent since this blog was first written.
