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).

  1. That does look really cool. I find it's so hard to find great-looking dog beds that are reasonably priced. Though your dogs are doing a good job being models and convincing us that they like the bed.

  2. You have the cutest dogs!! I love the dog beds. I want to make my own but i am not the greatest with the sewing machine. Yours looks great!
