By the way Craftalong, I need your help. Well those of you who have sewn a dog bed your self before.
Q: I am looking for durable fabric for my doggie bed 35x45, yet I don't want it too hot. Other wise my dogs wont sleep on it. Can anyone recommend anything?

I thought of a lighter weight of upholstery, while my husband said to layer cotton stretch jersey since they love to curl up in our hamper. (Dirty mutts. Tongue) We've had jersey sheets before and they gather holes too easily, but the dogs do seem to love our tshirts. I want something that will last and that they will use, but not too hot since we live in Arizona. Undecided Fleece and flannel is totally out of the question. HELP?

Maybe a brushed twill? So it'd be sturdy and soft?

Not getting anything done here. My Owen is yelling his head off instead of taking a nap. I might have to resort to taking him for a ride in the car.

What about using some denim?

During the summer, my dog will pull my [denim] jeans out of the laundry to lay on. I think denim is a good durable choice for a dog bed!
Hmm, maybe I will make my dog a bed for Christmas...eek, another item on the list!

kwiltykate  I love the owl clips and clip holder! It's so adorable, you did an awesome job on it. I want one and I'm 27 and never wear hair clips, lol.

Dog bed weigh in ~ I like light weight upholstery because you can get it in colors that coordinate (my dogs bed is the same pattern as my curtains but red while my curtains are gold). If you're not worried about that then I second (third?) that denim is a good choice. Maybe you can make a blanket out of your and your husbands old shirts to throw over it so your dogs can lay on it but it wont take the majority of the wear. And also if your dogs are hot they just wont lay on the bed, I'm in AL so heat is also an issue and it's pretty common for our dogs to by pass the soft beds for the cool concrete floors.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I work in a fabric store and the most commonly used fabric is duck cloth. It is the same material that Carhart work clothing is made from. Duck cloth is more durable than denim, but not as soft.

Troublet love that black and gold tshirt!

Over the last three days I made a swap object. And now I am playing catch up on this weeks blanket squares because I ran out of the soft black wool again and had to wait for Friday's pay to come in to get more. Lucky they are only small and can get done in an hour or so. I have to get two and a half done before tonight, when I start the next week's lot while watching Bones and Castle. Then maybe tonight I'll whip up another tiny dragon for the mobile, since my friend's due date is less than a month away.

ARGH, too many wips!
