Description

I wanted to get the boys some new doggy beds, but they are really expensive. The cheapest I found were $20 a piece and that was on clearance.  I found some Michael Miller Home d├ęcor fabric on clearance a while back for $5 a yard and decided I could make them new beds myself. The fabric is a pretty heavy canvas type material and thought it would be a good choice since their old beds had holes in them. I recycled the stuffing from the old beds which were bigger so they are pretty fluffy. I think I would like to tack some of the bed down in spots so the poor little guys aren't rolling off of them LOL. I had about 4 yards of fabric and was able to make both beds and still have about 1.5 yards left. The beds are about 20" x 30" x 2.5"(deep)


So got some food in me and had an idea...Doggy bed 2.0...this involved me re-opening the bed and pulling the stuffing out, but the dogs love it even more. I was able to stitch lines in the fabric to create the tacking. This way I don't have to use anything that could be swallowed.  Now one more bed to do and they will be happy little dogs.

these are great! I know what you mean about dog beds being costly. I was thinking I should make Raven one...but she is a lot bigger than your little guys (about 68#) so I would have to use more fabric :)

Caribousmom True Thanks ladies! Wendy its a pretty basic pattern, I'm sure you could easily adjust to accommodate Raven.

Love the fabric! And Scruffy is pretty cute too!!

Charlie

Great choice of heavier fabric for the beds. Such cuteness in the photos. Love them.

Skynme

danadane Charlie Thank you! I figured out a version 2.0 which works a little better. Its not as cute, but the don't roll off either.

Aww cute doggies! Nice cushions too :) I'd make something like this for my cats but they just don't appreciate these things the same as dogs do lol!

These look fantastic! Great job! Our animals live better than some people! They are so lucky to have us sewing mamas! Your dogs looks so happy.

sareew I agree they have it pretty good. Your little nesting basket was what finally pushed me to get these done and they love them, so thank you!
Mymble Joke Thanks ladies! I love my little guys and they love to hang out with me in the lady cave.
Carolmarie I saw the little nesting basket that sareew made for her cat Twix. She looked so happy in it. That's what pushed me to finally get these done for the boys. I have had this fabric since last year.

I think it is safe to say that the doggies like the cushions! Cute.
