A cat house

I found the little cat house tutorial on Pinterest and was smitten with it; I just knew I needed to make Pumpkin and Spike one!
The pattern is quite straight forward (I did alter the dimensions because P&S are so big!), I mean, you can easily see from the picture how it’s made, but attaching the flooring and the roof panels was just nearly impossible. I had to sew it up while standing, so I had better control over the house going in the right direction!
I just didn’t have enough space behind my sewing machine, so the house ended up riding against the wall. I had to bend the interfacing of the house in every possible position to get the seams sewn. I was a bit worried there that bending it so much would decrease the stability of the house, but it all worked out just fine.
Originally I wanted to add detailing to the front door and perhaps a bell and name plate, but I couldn’t come up with a good idea, so I decided to leave the front panel like it was. I can always iron something on later.
Quilting cotton and Pellon Peltex heavy interfacing (71F). I got it with a 50% coupon, because it’s quite expensive
