Stone Mountain, ...
A few months ago a friend of mine brought me a bag full of clothes she no longer wanted. The bag she brought them in was a gift wrap bag from Target.com, from when she got a baby shower present. I made this dog bed out of that gift bag.
Actually, I made this dog bed slip cover out of that bag.
I didn’t use a pattern. I just drew a circle the size that I wanted, and cut a strip of fabric about 8 inches wide and long enough to go around the circumfrence of the circles.
The inside is a pillow I made out of an old padded mattress cover for the shell, and the stuffing is pollyfill from an old frog chair that had rips and chocolate milk stains.
It’s approximately 7 inches thick.
It’s really comfy & getting enjoyment from every animal in the house, and even the kids. ☺
All recycled materials:
