(yes, believe it or not, that’s a cat on the picture, not a squirrel)
I’m sure I’m not the only one who got one of those radiator cat beds and the cat has destroyed the fabric. My cat is particularly keen on “kneading” the bed before he sleeps on it, so one of the corners is so worn off the fabric has come apart. I needed a new cover, but didn’t want to buy a new bed just for that as the metal frame is still perfect, so I thought of making one with an old blanket.
All you need is a blanket you don’t mind cutting up and some sewing supplies (a sewing machine makes it quicker, but you can hand stitch it too).
Take the frame out of the fabric cover and cut up the blanket measuring it against the original cover.
Sew a hem on the side and bottom to make a long sack shape. If your blanket isn’t reversible, do this on the reverse as you’ll have to turn it inside out.
Then you just turn it inside out to hide the hems, and it’s ready to be put onto the frame.
