Daybed Chair

08 September 2010

While browsing the internet for the perfect daybed I came across this beauty. Not exactly the kind of daybed I was browsing for but I'll take it. It looks incredibly comfortable and is what I've been looking for without even knowing. I'm not sure if you can actually buy it, or if it's just one of those concept pieces. If it is for sale it's probably crazy expensive. But I can dream.


Tutorial: Dog Bed

Dog Bed

Sabe on the dog bed

Here is the giant dog bed (30" x 45" x 3") that I slaved over for the huskies and they don't appreciate it in the least! Contrary to what the above pictures may have you believe, it is rarely used. Both pictures were posed and after it was over they got up and went about their business. It has a batting wrapped foam insert and zippered cover for easy washing. I used fabric from Joel Dewberry's ginseng line.

If you want to make one for your own dog there are tutorials for something similar at Sew4Home and Sew Mama Sew.

This is by far the best tutorial I could find on making your own bias tape (piping).
