Her love of the squidgy cushion she purloined is what inspired the accidental polystyrene beads over order so that I could make her lovely soft overlay cushions for her favourite places. Unfortunately, I got it very wrong in terms of how much beady filling is required in a cushion and I managed to create a...rock! It is pretty but has all the give of steel so I've been using it to perch my laptop on when on my knee.
I tried again and half filled another cushion which is not great either and is certainly not going to do much for Magic's little joints. I think I need to make them with the stretchy material I have and keep experimenting with the filling volume.
Update: the 'rock' seems to be getting slightly softer the more I use it for my laptop and knee exercises so I think there may be a bit of a bedding in period with beanbags when they are used. It is still not what you'd call comfortable and Magic ignores it but there may be a slim hope yet, even if my fledgling career a cat cushion maker is doomed.
