Olga's masterclass will enable you to make a felted cave of any shape and decor.
Felted Cat House Olga's tutorial includes:
pattern calculation;
kinds of wool, ways of felting;
how to make a 3D item on a flat pattern;
how to avoid seams and creases;
wool and textile: best combinations;
Before felting a cave house or a cat bed, it's good to know if your pet likes to sleep in an open space or hides somewhere for a nap… Keep in mind that wool is not a heater itself, but it keeps the warmth inside really well. That's to say, if the cat house is rather big, your cat might not feel at home there.

Best sizes according to Olga's customers are S (35 cm at the bottom), М (40cm) and L (45 cm). The weight is about 450-550 gr (more décor adds to the weight). And an XL (55cm at the bottom), which takes at least 600 gr of wool.
