You can, of course, take a piece of a rug and tie it with a crochet or trim with a lip. But there are more interesting options. In order for your business to flourish, you still need to put some imagination and skills. For example, it is very attractive to look a mattress in a zippered case. The cover can be made from almost any fabric, but it is better to take dense flax, tapestry or sheared fur. Forms and sizes can be very diverse.

Very interesting looks mattress "padded stool". The technique of sewing it is as follows: individual ottomans of square form are taken and sewed together. The top is lined with a cloth, better flannel. Lining - absolutely any. Since your business is only on the way to becoming, it is better to take the cheapest fabric. We cut the lining fabric into small squares, 10 centimeters in length. For the upper fabric, you need to take 40% more. Lining fabric is folded in half, the center of the bend is cut into 2 cm. We connect the face sides of the top and the lining. Surplus top should be laid in folds. Then grind it around the perimeter and turn it around. The number of ottomans can be about 30-40. Ready padded stitches along the perimeter. You can fill it with foam rubber or a sintepon. The cuts are sewn by hand, and the edges are handled by edging. Dimensions, of course, can be changed at will. As well as forms.
You, as the owner of your business, understand that the price of the finished product must exceed the cost price. We recommend setting the selling price more than twice as much as the cost price. For example, to sew a product you spent 100 rubles, which means that the sale price will be 200 rubles.
All cats love to take a rest in the secluded, hidden places of the apartment. It can be a mezzanine, a shelf of a cabinet with linen, a travel bag, etc. Perhaps that's why there was an idea to create a new business - to make houses for cats.
The housing of such a dwelling may resemble a doghouse in shape. The floor can serve as a tourist carpet (karemat), the walls can also be made from a carpet or foam rubber, the ceiling is foam rubber. Each detail of the house is in the case, inside which is inserted foam rubber. Then we connect the details, and the house for the cat is ready. As a supplement, next to the house there are various "claws". It's not a secret that cats like to thread claws on soft furniture or carpet in the house.
Dimensions can be any, but within reason. In a very large house the cat will not be comfortable. In general, the shape of the house can be different. For example, a cube or a house. There are options for a house that will be folded and can be taken on the road.
The cost of houses for a cat is much higher than the cost of making it. Let's say you spent 300 rubles, and the selling price of them is at least 700 rubles. If you made a house for a dog, then the price is even higher.
You can arrange sewing any sunbeds, sofas, soft toys and many other interesting things.
