Aby-a-Day – September 6: The Princess and the Apple

As I said on Thursday, I wasn’t completely happy with the cushion I’d made for the iMac cat bed.

So, I went back to the drawing board. I bought a square of upholstery foam and cut it to fit the iMac.

I had to carve out a little dent to accommodate the irregularities of the inside of the iMac.

The pattern I created was the same as I’d used before, but with a strip in between the top and bottom, making the cushion more angular and more three-dimensional.

Here it is in the iMac…not a bad fit at all!

Using the same pattern, I made a miniature version for the mini iMac.

The pattern on the fabric doesn’t scale down, but apart from that, it’s a perfect replica.

It’s also a perfect fit!

Just right for mini-Abys!

So, I am pleased to present the finished iMac cat bed and cushion, complete with Abyssinian…and its miniature counterpart.
