Second Time Around Tuesday

This trunk was my oldest daughter's toy box when she was a baby. It was one of those that was later deemed "unsafe" because children were suffocating after the lid would fall on them. I never quite figured out how this could happen if you were supervising your child, so we continued to use it. She is has just moved into a new place and the cats always laid on top of the trunk in front of the window.
I purchased this cute fabric last year with the intentions of making a pillow for the top of the trunk. It looks like a newspaper, but when you look at it closely, it is all about cats! The fabric is so cute and I hope the kitties love laying on it!


  1. That is just the neatest fabric and what a clever idea!!! Cindy

  2. It is great to reuse things that also have great memories. That fabric is so adorable.

    Thanks for sharing

  3. How clever for a cover when you know those kitties are going to rest right there! Purrfect! PAM

  5. That is most unusual fabric. Lucky you to find it. Your idea for the pillow top is a good one.


  6. Wow! Love the "Kitty Chronicle" Fabric! What a Kewl way to refurbish a Great Family Heirloom. BTW...it's a wonder our kids survived to maturity, with all the now "unsafe" things that were everyday life to us..."Back in the Day!" LOL! Hugs, Starla
