vintage suitcase kitty bed

Before I even had Marty, this photo inspired me to one day have a vintage suitcase kitty bed for my future woogie. Once Jon and I got Marty the dream was always talked about but neither of us put the idea into motion. Until now. Jon found a suitcase a few months back and wanted to take on the task of making and surprising Marty. Here is the finished product!





She's in love.

  2. love it! I've been wanting to do this for a dog bed. I have the suitcase - just haven't actually done it. I think I will get inspired now and do it!

  3. That is so special! I saw something similar on Etsy awhile ago, but the suitcases had little short chair legs on the bottom. They were pretty expensive though... I have so many vintage suitcases, I definitely need to make one for my little Charles Bukowski!
