Loki's old dog bed was getting pretty worn out, and his little sister Rowan (we call her Rowan the destroyer) started working on the stringy fabric until it was pretty much destroyed.  Thanks Rowan.  So I brought out my trusty seam ripper, tore the whole thing apart, and made a new one.  I re-used the welting and the bottom piece, since it was still perfect and it's a durable, weather type fabric.  What do you guys think? I'm very very pleased with it.


The fabric I used on the sides was a ridiculously soft fuzzy fleece.  It was all I had lying around in a suitable color and in the amount that I needed.  Aside from my living room being covered in blue fuzz, it worked out perfectly!

The bottom fabric that was saved from the previous dog bed

Looks like Loki and Rowan approve! Please don't destroy this one, Rowan...that's why you don't get to have a bed in your crate.

I'm so glad I added a zipper, so it can be washed.  The whole thing only took a couple of hours, and wasn't too difficult.  The welting looks all wrinkly, but it was like that before. I don't mind, and I don't think Loki does either. Wink

Wow, that turned out great, I love the color.

And what lovely dogs, by the way.  I used to have a husky and mine would never sleep on a pillow, how nice that yours will! Smiley

Oh, thank you! Yeah, they're beautiful alright.  VERY much a handful though.  We take them mushing on the weekends (actual sled-dog work, urban style) just to keep them exercised and worn out. Otherwise they're freaks on fire running around everywhere, playing, chewing things (Rowan, mostly).  They prefer sleeping on pillows or beds, fabric, clothes, whatever they can find. Spoiled puppies, they are!

Very nice looking bed.  Good job at saving the fabric.  I used to breed Siberian Huskies for show and sledding and they can be puppies for a LONG time.  Mostly they get into trouble when they are bored, but I'm sure you figured that one out.

Oh my goodness! A fellow musher on craftster? What are the odds! How big was your kennel? What made you give it up? We've done snow sledding, but mostly we use downhill mountain scooters to take hiking trails. Just my small team of two, but that's perfect for an urban musher like me. Smiley
