    Felt cat cave tutorial - cat bed pattern - downloadable PDF - diy gift
    PLEASE READ: THIS IS A DOWNLOADABLE PATTERN, CAT BED IS NOT FOR SALE IN THIS LISTING

    This listing is for a TUTORIAL ONLY, which is a 12-page PDF file you can download after purchase. CAT CAVE NOT INCLUDED.

    Short questions I can answer before purchase:

    Q: How much wool do I need?
    A: More info in tutorial, but here is a brief summary: from 300g to 700g of coarser batting like bergschaf (Tyrol wool).

    Q: How long does it take to make one?
    A: 8-9 hours for the average felter. I would budget 15 hours for a beginner. You can stop at almost any step and wait days before starting again if necessary.

    Q: I'm a beginner. Is it too hard for me?
    A: I suggest making a couple of smaller things using wet felting techniques before attempting this. There are free tutorials out there for simpler projects. Especially I would try making a bowl. The cat cave project is a large time and money investment for a beginner, so I would practice on smaller projects first.

    The pictures in the listing are examples of our cat caves,that you can get in our shop or make yourselves using this tutorial.

    This tutorial took countless hours to write, photograph, and edit. It contains copyrighted material and may not be duplicated without consent of the author.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    BOOTS and SHOES:
    Felted wool clogs, as well as other natural wool does not require washing. Wool naturally repels dirt, it is usually sufficient to air felted footwear for odours to disappear.
    You can also use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum any accumulated dirt/dust from your footwear.

    Sizing details

    The sizing in different countries and even between different shoe brands is not consistent. I suggest measuring your feet by tracing them on a piece of paper with your full weight on the foot you are tracing. Make sure to keep the pencil/pen at 90 degrees to the surface of the paper. Measure the longest distance between your heel and toes and add that number into the notes when ordering.

    Shipping by courier

    Packages sent by courier take 2-3 days to reach their destination(do not forget to take into account the production time).

    Production time

    Ready to ship items will be shipped 1-3 working days after payment.
    Made to order items will be made and shipped in 10-20 days. In Holiday seasons, due to big amount of orders, making of custom orders can take longer.

    Soleing materials for slippers

    Latex coating -- non slip coat of latex, flexible and thin, makes your slippers more grippy on any floor.

    Rubber -- thin flexible rubber soling, protects your slippers from wet conditions, suitable for inside wear.

    Natural rubber -- made from natural latex, durable, non slip, good for a dash outside to grab your papers or have a coffee on a patio.

    Upcycled leather -- soft, non slip soleing for very quiet and smooth experience. The leather has been upcycled from old clothing.
