I hate how expensive a good dog bed is.
Even more than that, I hate how boring they are.
It’s an easy $20 spent for a plainly colored square shaped bed and costs extra for a personal touch.
NO WAY! I say.
So I decided this year for Christmas I was going to see if I couldn’t make my own for my girls and guess what? I could.
I went to the fabric store and picked out fabrics that I thought best represented the personalities of my baby girls which were luckily on sale for 50% off (Woot!)
Using their crate bottom as a pattern I cut out my sizes and hand stitched ’em together.
Then conserving more money, I used some of the old towels and blankets (freshly washed) they’ve used as well as stuffing from their old beds I fluffed ’em up and stitched the final bits (which I hope explains why they got their beds waaaay early!! LOL!)
Voila. Dog beds for $6.50.
If you’re interested in size, Analaigh’s bed fits into a large crate and she weighs 70 pounds while Rose’s bed fits into her medium crate and she weighs 50 pounds.
