Just popping in with a quick entry tonight to share a new article I have up on the Fiskars website. Follow the link below the photos and you'll find a tutorial for making these incredibly simple dog beds. They are waterproof so you only have to wash the covers. Never the pillow. And there are no zippers. They are held closed with Velcro.
This is a really great beginner project. And if you don't want to make them waterproof, it's even easier. I used a shower curtain as the cover for the pillow part of the bed and it's a little tricky to sew because it's slick. But, since the liner gets turned right-side out before you stuff it, no one will ever see if the layers shift and you're a little off on your sewing. Guess how I know that?
The tutorial for making these dog beds, as well as the story behind why I decided we needed waterproof dog beds, can be found on the Fiskars website.
