I have several "practice quilts" that I have laying around. My definition of 'practice quilts"-- a quilt I made with scraps, that is quilted with less than beautiful stitching, that is unbound. I never know what to do with them. They are not pretty, are usually and odd shape or size and the stitching is well, "just practice." I had and idea swimming around in my brain. I took some measurements and decided it just might work. I'll make a new dog bed for Ginger, perhaps then she will not need to sleep on my bed.
I started with this quit that measured 32X64. I squared it up, folded it in half and installed a heavy duty 22 inch plastic zipper along the long side. Once the zipper was installed I sewed up the two remaining sides. I measured and boxed the corners, and added a piece of 2 inch foam.
and TA-DA Instant dog bed, just add dog, wait and enjoy!
***For those of you wondering the bed frame does say "Rosie" M and I made this when Rosie was alive and M was 9! WoW! Now it has a brand new look****
