Wow awesome! How do you stuff this? My dog needs one. What size are you making it? I might do dense straight lines to make it more sturdy (my dog likes to "dig" on his pile of blankets). As for FMQ, personally, I find that an all over meandering stipple/loopy type pattern is so much easier and faster than straight lines. It's really forgiving to "mistakes" and you'll have less fatigue on larger items than standing there doing straight lines over and over again. Plus, why not try out your FMQ on something for your dog? He's not going to judge. :)
Kristananne - The first one I used an old feather bed. That was torture. This time, I bought a full size memory foam mattress on Amazone for $50. I cut it in half so that it's twice the height but shorter and use that. I'm having a tutorial posted to my blog next week, so I'll update this project with that link when I'm done. The final dimensions are 37x50." I don't know what size dog you have, but I know they also sell foam at Joanns in smaller sizes, but this was cheaper for the larger size.
You have one lucky dog! For the top I would probably do some organic type straight lines in varying widths going both ways. Close enough to help hold together but far enough apart to not take a really long time to do. And great idea.
This is super cute!
Yay!! I can't wait to see your tute!!
