If you love to host parties or just invite a few friends over to your home and have plenty of outdoor space, you should go for a unique outdoor function – a conversation pit. It used to be a trend and now it’s making a big comeback. There are several advantages – it’s a lot cozier, it’s a unique piece for any outdoor space, and you’ll really feel special in it as it’s usually a bit separate from the rest of the back yard. They can be made and clad with stone, brick, and concrete for durability and covered with wood for coziness and warmth. Let’s take a look at some ideas on how to steal.
Sunken conversation pits are a hot trend because they look really amazing. It’s like a separate zone in your outdoor space. It can be modern and elegant, with simple padded seats, and you can place a table or fire bowl in the middle for maximum comfort. If you have a pool, consider sinking your conversation pit right into the pool. It looks and feels amazing!
Common conversation pits are no lower than your deck level – they are on the same level or at least have cushioned seats on the deck. They are a lot easier to design. Add colorful pillows and candle lanterns to make the space more welcoming, and fireplaces are of course a good idea.
Cats love to have their own digs where no one can disturb them. This is why it is imperative for a cat owner to make one.
Prepare 1 yard of personalized fabric on eco-friendly canvas, 1 yard of lining fabric, 1 yard 1/2 "thick foam, a seat cushion, a free sample.
First, print out the pattern you want or use the pattern from the original tutorial. Print out the free sample download and glue it together! The pieces are about 1/2 "extra so cut and adjust the lines as shown in the pictures. Cut out the following pieces: a front, a top, a pillow, a base, a back, a Foam front and back. Sew the top to the center of the front. This piece is contoured a little so the top bends out a little, and you can use 2 fabrics too. Sew the front along the sides and top of the pattern to the back. Use a 1/4 "seam allowance. Cut off the top corners of the ears, but don't cut off the seam allowance. Push and turn. Pin the base piece with the right sides together around the bottom of the cat bed. You have to turn around and plug in and off you go. To make this part easier, just sew your base and around the bottom of the cat bed and pull the threads as needed. Also, mark the base with pens to divide it into quadrants, then match the sides to the sides of the cat bed piece. When you've pinned all the way, the cat bed is inside out. Sew around the base. Turn right. Repeat with lining fabric. Now take your foam pieces. Sew the front and back foam together along the edges.
