Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday and after the holiday weekend, we're resting up around here so I thought I'd show you a new hammick type bed we have to rest up on.
Mommy and Daddy made it for us! Daddy made the frame nice and big in case my sisfur decides to cuddle up on it with me. Mommy put the fabric on so it's nice and soft for us too.
Mommy doesn't sew so she tried to put the fabric on with heat activated velcro. Well, after melting the fabric onto the iron she turned the heat down but it wasn't hot enough to make the velcro stick so when we first got on it we fell to the floor. So she stayed up really late one night hand sewing the fabric around the frame so we can sleep on it. I sleep on it a lot now since she put so much work into it.
Now if only I could get the pawpawrazzi to leave me alone it'd be purrfect!
Hope you have a Happy Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

Well Isabella I guess you have someone over there that loves you very much. Looks like a wonderful place to take a nap. You can stretch out good and just relax.
Have a napping good week ahead.

oh my, your Mommy and Daddy did a fab job on that hammock and your Mommy chose a very pretty fabric too!
Handsewn - wow! Kudos to your Mom for her patience. Just shows how much she loves you :)

p.s. I can just imagine what that iron looked like after the fabric stuck to it ;-)
Hope your Mommy got the gunk off again!

The Monkeys said...

Wow, we wish our Mom had even a little bit of your Mom's talent, Isabella! The only thing our Mom can make is breakfast!

Mishkat said...

Isabella, you are a beautiful model! That looks like such a nice bed - and how nice of your humans to make it for you. The fabric looks so soft, and the color is purrfect for you.

P.S. Our mom says she has problems with iron-on stuff too - she uses iron-on patches on our dad's pants but always sews over it to make it stick!

Woof! Woof! That's Great!!! I got one too that I used outdoors. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Laura said...

Your new bed is pawsome! And it was nice of you to be guinea pigs and fall on the floor before the final product was finished!

Roschelle said...

very cute isabella. hope it's as comfy as it looks!

Marg said...

What a great Mommy you have to work that hard on the hammock. I had to laugh at the iron deal. That is something our Mom would do in a skinny minute. Our Mom probably couldn't have gotten it sewn up either so good job. It looks so comfy too.
Have a terrific Tuesday.

Catherine said...

Your new hammock looks comfy cozy Isabella! Your mom is sure sweet staying up late and sewing it for you kitties. Have a good snoozy and hopefully the camera will stay out of your face for the rest of the day! :)

Nico Designs said...

sorry but I laughed so hard at the imagery of poor Isabella falling to the floor. I do not like those sticky things--I don't think they work. And kudos to you for HAND sewing!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

That Hammick is AMAZING!!! Your beans did a great job! It sure does look cozy!

Katnip Lounge said...

You are not gonna believe this, but we have a hammock with the EXACT same fabric! Isn't it nice and scoochy?

Your poor Mom, having to hand sew the whole thing. Next time mail it to Mommy and she'll stitch it up in no time.

Ann said...

Your mom and dad make a good creative team. That's one cool hammock. Now they need to make a bigger one for Sadie :)

Faith said...

That was so nice of your mom and dad, what a cool hammock! I bet they love seeing you relaxing there! :)

ByNanasHands said...

Wow, your Mama must love you an awful lot to make you such a beautiful and comfy bed! You are one lucky fur baby!!

Lin said...

Mommeh needs to sew a photographer shield on that thing!! It looks soooo comfy!

Reeni said...

What a beautiful bed Isabella! Your Mom and Dad could make those and sell them on Etsy so other kitties like me could have one. I hope Sadie doesn't try to get on it with you! I bet she could fit. Love, Moon

Hot Rocks said...

Your hammock is divine! Your Mommy and Daddy are very special! Good thing Mommy learned to sew...I would have tried the Velcro or glue first as well, coz I hate sewing too!

The Island Cats said...

That's a pretty cool hammick your mom made, Isabella! We have one but ours is a one-cat hammick!

Simba said...

Great new beddie! the frame looks like it is made with the kind of corners that Dad wants to use for making me an enclosure better than my Funhouse. Can we email your Daddy for more information about where he got the supplies?

Love the Paw fabric!
