|Charity dog bed about 3/4ths full.|
You start with a pillow case (store bought or hand made, your choice). It does not have to be fancy, but you do want to make it close to the size of a standard pillow case so it fits in a kennel. A standard pillow case measures 21 by 32 inches. Have some ugly fabric hanging around the house? Use that. An old sheet that ripped? That'll work, too.
|Toss in all those scraps that are too small to use.|
|Here's the bed hanging from the end of my ironing board (and if you are thinking that my ironing board is too messy to actually iron on, you're correct).|
Once the pillow case is full, sew the open end closed. Call around to your local animal rescues to see who needs a donation of kennel beds. Most will be happy to take them.
|I made this bed out of a really large orphan block. Both beagles enjoy it, but neither would pose for me this morning. Such divas.|
