This is Duff, a 3 years old Dachshund that I’ve started fostering last week. He’s very sweet!
My previous foster dog has destroyed the big pillow that he used as his bed, So I thought that I would make a proper dog bed for Duff. Yes I could have bought it, but where’s the fun of it?
After searching for some DIY dog bed on the internet, I found one via Pinterest that I quite like. Unfortunately the Pinterest link only pointed to the image with no explanation of the original creator. The watermark shows a username on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging service. If you are the owner of the image, or you know who owns the image, please tell me so I can give a proper credit. This is the image
The idea of the dog bed is quite simple but clever. Everything is in one piece, you only need to shape them by stitching some lines across. The walls are then connected to each other using ribbon ties. I use cotton/linen mix from my stash, it is an interior weight fabric with checks pattern. The filling is recycled from the destroyed dog pillow.
The pillow form was also recycled from the old pillow, filled with leftover fibrefill and cut-up fabric scraps. The case is just some old pillow case lying around.
