Dog Beds

So, since we moved into the new house, I decided it was time for Rocky to have a bed of his own! And then Maggie needed a new one because I have no idea where hers went. We looked around in stores and couldn’t find what we were looking for. Everything was either too expensive or not nearly sturdy enough. Then, I looked at JoAnn’s and found that to buy fabric and filling would be at least as much as buying a bed! So, the search continued…! I know this seems like a lot of trouble over a dog bed, but it was a lot less eventful than it sounds. I was just being indecisive/ cheap.

In the end I bought the fabric when it went on sale and used a coupon for a double whammy. Each bed took 1 yard of print and one yard of solid. The filling was going to be the most expensive part, but I slaughtered some old pillows (very easy to find at garage sales or thrift shops, if you don’t have any already). Each bed cost under $15 and the most difficult part was getting the dogs to hold still for a photo!

Just make it like a giant pillow. I didn’t even have to cut anything out! If you have smaller dogs you may have to cut it down some, but it is just a rectangle. When you stuff it, make sure you fluff the stuffing good before you put it in (especially if it’s older). This will make the stuffing go a lot further and the pillow will not look lumpy!

Here are some pictures of my goofy dogs and their beds!
