***Here are a couple of thoughts from me about this pattern. The pattern says this bed is 18" square - but it certainly doesn't look square to me. And 18" isn't a very big bed - my pups wouldn't be comfortable on it. And besides, they all love to lay on the same bed Together! So, point #1 - Make a larger bed - 24" x36" is good for our 3 pups...decide what works for yours. #2 - I would want a zipper in this so that
if when I need to clean it, I can remove the cover and wash it and I'd put it on the longer side. #3 - I would put another fabric below the cover - on the foam or the cushion, just in case there is an accident of any kind - the entire cushion doesn't get wet...and I'd tie that or velcro it to the cushion for easy removal. Doing all of these steps means of course, that I would NOT be doing Step 5 at the very end - covering buttons and putting them through the cushion.***
I found this cute pattern and thought I'd share it! I know my 3 pups would LOVE this!! Create a pillow for your favorite four-legged friend. From the magazine, Home Decor Sewing.
