DIY Quilted Dog Bed *FINISHED WITH PICS*

    For Christmas I had asked for a new sewing machine (with the idea of sewing Kuma's ripped up toys and some other fun projects) After researching dog beds I saw this beautiful dog bed and thought I would tackle this as my first project.

    I've been cursing my way through the project because I keep on making additions that are out of my skill set of pretty much no experience lol I finally finished the inner pillow tonight that will go inside the removable cover (for washing purposes)

    I put the bed at the foot of our bed for Kuma to test and he's PASSED out looking so comfy.. normally he puts himself to bed on our bed before we put him in the crate. He is melting my heart.. definitely encouraged to keep going with the cover :)

    Awesome! Would love to see a picture of the finished product! Also thanks for the link... I'll see if I can bribe my gf into making one as well. ;-) Mac's Action Adventure Stories

    It ended up being square since it's my first ever sewing project and I felt a little overwhelmed at the idea of making it round haha.

  • I agree with everyone else!! Great job for a first time project. Can't imagine what else needs to be done to it. Always wished I could sew but my stuff never quite worked out the way I envisioned it.... Kuma's gonna benefit from this project of yours for sure.

    I might eventually make Saya a nice bed she only has fleece blankets in her crate..

    I might make a nice dog bed for to be on my bed with sheep skin on the top for nice comfy feel or maybe not she might try clean it or attack it. lol
