Martha sewed this pillow as a gift for her cat Bartok. She used a fine cotton fabric to make pillow slips, which she filled loosely with dried homegrown catmint. The zipper makes it easy to remove the catmint before washing the cover.
Tools and Materials
Sewing machine and sewing supplies
- Follow instructions to make the zipper pillow cover.
- Add a 1-inch seam allowance, substituting the measurement of the cat bed for the measurement of the pillow insert.

- In place of pillow inserts, fill the bed with catmint.
