crochet this mushroom cottage for your cat


How pawsome is this?

If you’re asking yourself when the cat ladies at frankie will stop cooing over elaborate hideaways for moggies (see: here, here and here), you should know that the answer is absolutely never. The world can be a stressful place, so we won’t deprive ourselves (or you, dear readers) from the serotonin-boosting pleasures of a cosy cat cave shaped like a mushroom.

If you’re handy with a crochet hook, you can make this one yourself. The clever crocheters at BuddyRumi have designed a pattern for a woodland-themed mushroom cottage, complete with a patch of grass and little caterpillar wearing a teeny-tiny hat and scarf. It’s ridiculous and charming and we love it. If you do, too, pick up the pattern over on Etsy.
