“This is why we can’t have nice things!” A phrase that is commonly used in my house and is often directed at the dogs.
They are chewing monsters. They chew almost anything they can get their grubby little paws on.
In fact, Padme the Basset Hound, recently ate two large magnets, a metal marble, 3 legos and 11 cents. After an extensive surgery and large vet bill we now raid the floor of all non-dog appropriate toys like a SWAT team.
Our diligent policing of the floor caused boredom in our charming Basset Hounds and they tore apart their nice fancy dog bed.
After picking up the remains, I vowed they would not receive a fancy dog bed until they had moved past the destructive stage.
I dug through my storage closet pulled out 2 old pillows and bought a clearanced no sew fleece blanket “kit” and went to work.
Sew the two pillows together. I did not use a machine… as you can see
Place the 2 pillows on a fleece blanket.
You will notice my precise “measurements”.
Lay the second piece of fleece on top of the pillows. Try to line them up as much as possible.
Cut the corner in a right angle. I used a small block of wood for a rough line.
Cut the right angle corner on each side
Make your strips on each side
Knot the strips together.
Once each side had been knotted your bed is complete!
I didn’t bother worrying about it looking perfect. A dogs bed will get dirty and wrinkled so why worry about something that is destined for imperfection.
It pretty easy to untie and wash if needed.
