Homemade Dog Bed.

I had been wanting to buy a dog bed for Daisy, the family dog. We had an old blanket and pillow on the floor for her, but those kept getting moved around by her and the kids. I had been pricing them, but the cheapest one walmart had was $20, and it looked wimpy. I checked Ross and they had some for $13, but it still looked kinda crappy, so I decided to make one myself! I took the blanket and pillow Daisy had been using, and cut out the shape of the pillow on the blanket. I sewed it on the machine to make a covering for the pillow, then I cut a strip about a foot wide and long enough to wrap around the outer edge of the pillow. I sewed up the side and then stuffed it. It looked like a really long noodle pillow. I then sewed it by hand onto the outer edge of the pillow, and voila! A comfy dog bed :) It's been Daisy's favorite spot ever since, and I saved at least $13. I wish the picture was better. Had to use my webcam since we haven't replaced our digital camera yet. As you can see, Simon managed to get his cute little self in the pic.
